President’s Message

Terry DohertyApril 2024

March Madness has started, the clocks have changed, and the birds are coming home. So much is happening and has happened lately. I feel like every month I could write about tragedy and terrible things happening around the globe. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how my heart hurts every time, I turn on the news. So I am turning off the news today and I want to tell you about some great things that have happened in March and that are coming up in April and May. days, for sure.

I am wanted to thank our amazing sponsors Accomsure ALE Management Solutions, Aurex Relocations and CRCS DKI for supporting our Family Fun Night. Thank you to all that came out to watch the Fronts beat Oshawa. We had great food, great hockey and a lot of kids running around. Thanks to the Kawartha Durham Chapter for co-hosting this event, it was a great success.

The OIAA and TIAA are really great in so many ways, we have such great people in our organization. As a very proud Irish Canadian, I must tell you that this years OIAA St. Patrick’s Day party was over the top. We have the best vendor partners we could ask for, Winmar Kingston built an amazing stage for this event and even had it painted up for us in time. We had other sponsors such as, Rebuild-Response, Arcon Forensic Engineering, Hudson Restoration, Xpera Investigations, OnSide Restoration, and our very own TIAA, who sponsored all of the food that was prepared by Go Italian and Chef Jess.

The night was amazing, we had the “Celtic Kitchen Band” performing throughout the night. Singing and dancing and we even had Lynn from Malcolm Bros., on stage playing the spoons with the band on more than one occasion. I can’t thank everyone who attended, sponsored, and helped make this event the success it was.

We are only days away from our annual OIAA Claims Conference, all of the speakers are in place. Every booth is sold, and all of the prep work is nearly done. A huge thank you to Kyle Case, Jennifer Brown, Christine Andrews, and all of the other team members who have worked tirelessly on making this the event of the year. We have another great line up of speakers, and we once again have the Career Fair and Employer Fair happening alongside this one day extravaganza for the insurance industry.

Please make sure you stop by all of our vendors, speak with new perspective colleagues as we mix and mingle throughout the day. I will be taking my normal position on stage doing the Live to Air “WP Radio” insurance podcast. If you are looking for a little downtime and want to hear from some interesting people, please stop on by and have a listen. I will be live from 10:30 to 3:30.

Last but not least, we have our Annual Golf Day happening on May 31, 2024, at Cardinal Golf and Country Club. Tickets and sponsorship open up on April 1, 2024, with only 144 spots for golfing and little opportunity to be a part of the OIAA’s last event of my presidential year. And what a year it has been, I will be doing a full recap in the June edition as I say “Goodbye” to the OIAA Executive and join an esteemed alumnus of Past Presidents.
