NAIFA WELCOMES NEW MEMBER JOSHUA RUBLE

By NAIFA-Texas on 6/28/22 8:59 AM

PUBLISHED BY RONAN FRIEND ON AT.NAIFA.ORG

When Joshua Ruble graduated from college, he didn’t plan on a career in insurance. However, when a friend suggested a Risk Management Advisor role in Dallas, he quickly took the opportunity and relocated from Oregon.

As a Risk Management Advisor at C1 Insurance Group, Ruble works primarily with high-net-worth families insuring their homes, autos, valuables, and more. He enjoys building relationships with his clients and educating them on the risks they face and consulting on how to best prepare for those disasters. One experience that stood out to him in particular came during a winter freeze. He insured a family’s home with extensive water damage protection through one of his premier carriers. Following the freeze, the home sustained extreme water damage. Not only was the damage repaired to the extent of $750,000, but all the work was completed in six months. Ruble’s client expressed his gratitude, saying, “Your service, responsiveness, and the way you keep your customers updated is truly on a different level than others.”

As a NAIFA member, Ruble is excited to network with and learn from other industry professionals. “I want to be more well-rounded in my knowledge of my industry, as well as others that will best serve my clients,” he says. 

Outside of the office, Ruble enjoys spending time with his wife and 2-year-old daughter. He appreciates the opportunity his career gives him to provide for and spend time with his family. His daughter loves animals, so the family visits zoos and museums often. Ruble is also an avid sports fan, loves hosting gatherings of friends, and stays involved in his community through his church and his daughter’s school. 

Thank you, Joshua, for your hard work and dedication. We look forward to a bright future in the association for you and are #NAIFAproud to call you one of our own.

(Virtual) Congressional Conference 2021: Its Happening!

By Bianca Alonso NAIFA-Texas Government Relations Manager on 3/31/21 5:40 PM

NAIFA recently announced that Congressional Conference 2021 will be happening virtually this year! This event is an amazing tradition that has engaged our members for as long as anyone can remember. Last year, of course, Congressional Conference was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, out of an abundance of caution, NAIFA members in Texas and across the country will have the convenience of participating from the comfort of their home or office! We can still make an impact virtually. We did so for our virtual Day at the Capitol 2021 😁
