October 3rd- 5th was SIAA’s semiannual event in Boston at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. The event brought in SIAA members from across the nation. Team members Tony Caldwell, Jenn Fabian, and LeAnn Sanderson, all had a chance to represent OAA at the event.
Overall, OAA was able to witness firsthand that carriers value the relationship between them and SIAA members and look to us to be their flagship partner. Secondly, OAA is on the cutting edge of all the alliance members in the US.
Tony Caldwell had the chance to tour Liberty Mutual’s Solaria Labs and WeWork. SIAA is Liberty Mutual’s first $1 Billion dollar partner. Liberty Mutual Innovation is the “innovation hub of Liberty Mutual Insurance, integrating several initiatives and business teams, including Consumer Markets, Information Technology, and Strategic Ventures”.
This space allows LM team members to think like a start-up instead of a century-year old company (read more), testing new products and services. Caldwell mentioned in an OAA team huddle that he was impressed with LM’s commitment to creating an atmosphere that celebrates trial and error. A few of the photos are below!
Friday night was the Awards and Presentation Dinner. To put a cherry on top a great event, OAA’s Creative team was surprised by accepting the National Newsletter Contest 1st place prize. The creative team of Samantha Cassidy and LeAnn Sanderson have worked hard to ensure that OAA’s newsletter is always packed with engaging content. Congratulations!
Thank you SIAA for an amazing time. Heading toward the end of the year and planning for 2019, the OAA Team is feeling full of gratitude, and also very invigorated for what’s up ahead.
