On Tuesday next week, we have a great Lunch and Learn on our REALFire program. Hear from a panel of fire experts and get an insurance perspective regarding wildfire. This class is filled with great information and a bonus of having a free lunch and 2 CE credits. 

I am excited that our first Annual Affiliate Expo is coming up in just a couple weeks on June 21st at EagleVail Pavilion. We want to give members a chance to get to know our affiliates and win prizes doing so! As health insurance is essential for our members, we will have a representative at one of the tables for CAR’s health care program. This is a perfect opportunity to get all your question answered regarding the program and to see if it might be a good fit for you. The VBR Foundation will be providing our Grand Prize for this event - a beautiful Tundra 65’ Yeti cooler and seat. You will be entered to win by visiting the VBR Foundation table at the event.

Sign up today for the Expo by using the link below under "Upcoming Events."
