 TAMARA KATZ OF SAFECO INSURANCE NAMED 2015 INSURANCE PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR   Jay-Marie Garcia Named 2016 Insurance Professional of the Year

 Stephen Oldfather - Diablo Valley Insurance  receives the 2017 Bonnie Ottino Scholarship Award

Bonnie worked for IIABC, the precursor of IBA West, for 30+ years, serving as Executive Director until her retirement in 1984. She then filled that same position for the IIAACCC until 1994. During her long and varied insurance career, Bonnie was a staunch advocate of professional women in the insurance industry. She led by example, providing a model of hard work and the highest standards of professionalism. Bonnie passed away in 1995. The Independent Insurance Agents Association of Contra Costa County (IIAACCC) established this scholarship award in an effort to perpetuate her memory.  The Bonnie Ottino Education Memorial Award was established with several objectives in mind:

1) To assist insurance professionals in reaching a higher level of performance through professional education.

2) To assist agencies with the sometimes unaffordable professional development costs and thereby
contributing to their ability to provide continuing education to employees.

3) To enhance the knowledge of agency employees so that they, in turn, will contribute to their
association and the insurance profession as a whole.

Recipient of the award is given up to $500 reimbursement for successful completion of the course.
