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