APIASF/Farmers Insurance Scholar Events 2011

Farmers Insurance recently hosted a series of events for APIASF/Farmers Insurance Scholarship Recipients in five of their key agency cities – Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Seattle, and Philadelphia. Each event was hosted by local Farmers District Managers and provided an opportunity for local agents to meet some of the Scholars they are supporting. This is the third year in a row that APIASF has partnered with Farmers to celebrate the scholarship recipients with summertime events.
