Summer Picnic

West Bend associates and their families were treated to a picnic at the Washington County Fair Grounds!  Rides, music, food, animals and fun - what more could you ask for? 


The New Silver Lining Amphitheater

The ribbon was cut and the first artists took to the stage at the new Silver Lining Amphitheater on the Washington County Fair Park grounds.  West Bend donated $600,000 to build the new amphitheater to further support our community and the arts.  We look forward to the musicians they will attract to West Bend, not only just during the fair, but the rest of the year as well.  A huge thank you to Washington County and the public for their support!

CIC - Commercial Casualty Class

Held in conjunction with the PIA of Wisconsin, we had a full house of agents and West Bend associates learning about commercial general liability, additional insured concepts and endorsements, business automobile coverages, workers' compensation, cyber liability and excess liability/commercial umbrella coverages.  At the end of the day, some will take the commercial casualty exam for the CIC designation and others take the courses for continuing education credits.  


Bald Eagle Visits West Bend

We are featuring and celebrating the great United States of America this month as chosen by our Celebrating Cultures Committee.  They always plan fun events and provide opportunities to learn about cultures all over the world.  July is the perfect time to celebrate and what better way than to host our national icon of freedom...the bald eagle!  Angel and her handler, Jennifer, visited from the National Eagle Center in Minnesota to teach us about eagle biology and much more!  Watch a short video to learn about how eagles sleep.IMG_4762.jpg


Congratulations to our wondeful associates celebrating milestone anniversaries in July!

PDP Graduation

IMG_4253.jpgMany independent agents graduated from our Producer Development Program. For this training, West Bend contracts with Polestar, a company consisting of former insurance professionals that now consult, teach, and mentor our participants. The agents are hand-picked by the agency principals (like Rick Cox) and our Regional Sales Managers. If they qualify, they will attend educational sessions during two visits to West Bend that cover industry markets, trends, professional and commercial lines, priority management, referral harvesting, selling styles, social media, business planning and much more. They also presented to the West Bend associates, their peers, owners, and mentors. West Bend subsidizes part of the cost of this program to further support the education of independent insurance agents.
