The 2019 Top Associate Retreat took place Wednesday, October 2nd through Friday, October 4th at Big Cedar Lodge just outside of Branson.
Top Associates arrived mid-day on Wednesday to check in and settle in their rooms or cabins. Wednesday evening, a shuttle transported the group to Top of the Rock. There, agents took a walk past the awe inspiring Cathedral of Nature, a 200ft deep sinkhole to get to Arnie’s Barn. After cocktails, associates flocked outside to witness the breathtaking Top of the Rock sunset and watch the Sunset Ceremony, complete with a bagpipe performance and firing of a Civil War cannon. The sunset experience was followed by dinner, an assortment of Mexican cuisine at Arnie’s Barn. After dinner, shuttles transported the group to a bonfire for beverages and s’mores.
Thursday, sales associates were welcomed with a delicious breakfast buffet. Following breakfast, everyone attended the morning program featuring presentations from Carole McCabe (Senior Vice President, CBG), George Brockman (Manager, HSA Home Warranty), Nancy LoRusso (President, US Title), Jim Decker (Regional Manager, GRA), Genifer Sgroi (Field Marketing Manager, CBG), Alex Aaron (President, Archi-Pix), and Jim Dohr (President, CBG).
After the presentation and lunch, the associates were encouraged enjoy the many resort ammenities, such as a relaxing spa service, or a round of golf. Thursday evening, the group reconvened for cocktails and dinner. The night ended with entertainment by St. Louis band, The Hulapoppers, who had attendees on their feet and dancing all night long. Friday morning, the event concluded with breakfast at The Historic Worman House.
