Donny Everhart from Dixon Financial & Insurance Services was our speaker this week. He started out with an introduction about the DNA and its purpose. He then went on to explain about the many different types of insurance products offered from his company. Since his company is an independent insurance broker, he is able to present quotes from many insurance companies. This allows him to provide multiple quotes from different companies. He also provided many examples of the importance of having enough coverage for different policies. Questions were asked and answered.
Another reminder about next weeks meeting being at the Firehouse Bistro with Suzanne Lorente from FreeLife as our speaker.

She also mentioned the other events that the DDBA sponsors throughout the year as a way to bring awareness of the group activities and raise the necessary funds to keep the organization in operation.
Several leads were exchanged and discussion was made about the importance of this lead referral program as a core of our DNA group activities.
