Let us tell you a bit about 2016's event.....

The Insurance Institute of Southern Alberta’s 39th Annual Convocation & Awards Ceremony was held on November 23, 2016 at the BMO Centre.  300 people attended - Graduates, friends, family, colleagues - all together to say "congratulations". Take a look at the day on Twitter:  @InsuranceInsSA, #IISAConvocation.

Guests first enjoyed the Mimosa Reception and Industry Trade Show.  To the smooth sound of the Spencer Cheyne Jazz Trio, guests visited the booths and had the chance to enter a few prize draws. Here's the list of Trade Show participants: 

  • Career Connections
  • Rogers Insurance 
  • Servicemaster of Calgary
  • WICC
  • MKA Canada
  • The Network Corporate Search Personnel
  • ClaimsPro
  • The Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company
  • Awaken Renovations

The Reception was followed by a three-course meal. 

We then heard the words of wisdom from Nathalie Wright, the President of the IISA Governing Council, a greeting from the Insurance Institute of Canada from Jean-François Blais, Chair of the Board of Governors.

Then, the stars of the day took to the stage to receive their certificates. We began with the GIEs, then CIPs, and followed with the FCIPs.  Each Graduate paused on stage for a professional photo.

The final item on the program for the 39th Annual Convocation & Awards Ceremony was the presentation of the National and Local Award achievement awards followed by the Milestone Instructor Award.
