Things to Know All AGA Pie Events are submitted to CMS as Informal Sales Events No projectors for any pie events The Pie Presentation is on the agent portal Try not to read the presentation – familiarize yourself with it and make it natural You can answer plan questions if asked by attendees – you cannot initiate the conversation
Control the direction of your presentation and hold questions until the end Can do benefit presentations following the meeting – complete a SOA first! Hofs Hut & Marie Callenders – Water is the only beverage choice! AGA Finance Dept. sends out gift cards based on projections for your next week events Tips needs to be added to the bill before you hand to the cashier or wait staff for payment with a gift card. Most places cannot charge a tip only to the gift card.
