  • What our Agents have to say...

    “I enjoyed the trade show/exhibit area, with the opportunity to talk personally with the carrier reps and Garity personnel. I had an opportunity to get answers to some specific, outstanding policy/process/sales questions.”

    Nancy A.
    Medicare Broker, CT
  • What our Agents have to say...

    “I loved the day. It was very well organized, professional, fun and efficient. A great way to “start” AEP (feels like it is right around the corner). It was easy to walk around the vendor exhibit hall and every vendor was very welcoming and knowledgeable. It was nice to see familiar faces (carriers, Garity and agents) and talk again after several months. The food was very good and plentiful.”

    Sylvia F.
    Medicare Broker, MA
