The Social Committee was newly created by the IBNO in 2017. The committee consists of a group of insurance industry volunteers who work together to create amazing networking socials and events.
As the IBNO started moving towards more of a networking association, we needed volunteers to help make our networking events awesome
The main events the social committee is responsible for include, but not limited to:
- Annual charity golf outing
- Annual Clambake
- Annual Holiday party
Annual Golf Outing: This event is a summer event that we sponsor every year. This event has become one of our best popular and most attended ones. In 2018 our flagship charity was Wounded Warriors project. We raised over $5,000! Our golfers have a blast all day out on the course enjoying their golf game as well as sponsored holes by vendors and carriers. Afterwards all attendees ae invited back to the club house for dinner, as well as prizes and a Chinese raffle.
In 2019 the outing will be at RedTail Golf Club in Avon (Ohio). This is a semi-private course, providing a more difficult course for the serious golfer and a beautiful course for the occasional golfer.
Clambake: This event is always held in September. For many years this event was held at Windows on the River. The committee wanted to change the venue and for the past several years have held the sold out event at the Music Box Supper Club. Live music, delicious dinner, cigars and drinks on the deck overlooking the river have made this event one of the most talked about amongst our insurance colleagues. It has quickly become one of the best insurance networking events!
Holiday Party: This event is held early December is the midst of the holiday season. Traditionally we have held as a luncheon for many years. In 2018 the committee decided to change the venue and organized a cocktail party at The Collision Bend Brewing Company in the Flats. The venue was well received by those who attended – a perfect evening watching the softly fallen snow while among colleagues and friends celebrating the Holiday season.
