Afternoon Ethics Class Added!

March 24, 2010

The response to our Spring Seminar Series mailing has been excellent!

Brokers’ inquiries regarding the publicized March 26th Ethics class has been overwhelming–so much so that we have added a second Ethics class to be held that afternoon from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.  We still have seats remaining in the afternoon class.  Remember, this is a new Illinois Department of Insurance requirement–you must take a 3-hour classroom ethics course before your next license renewal.  The class will be held here in Schaumburg. 

RSVP’s are required.  Call Judy Wrigley at 847.598.0039 or email her at  Click on the following link for additional information March 26, 2010 Classroom Ethics Course.

Putting Some Time Into the Community

October 22, 2009

Well it is 2:00 am, John Rippinger, Katie Mangan, and myself (Blair Farwell) are sitting at the PADS Shelter (Public Action To Deliver Shelter) a homeless shelter located in Lombard, IL.  All three of us have pulled a six hour shift from 9:00pm to 3:00am, and John and I both will be in the office tomorrow (Katie is taking a well earned PTO day). 

We are proud of our ability to be able to return to the community,  and being able to keep the doors open to this facility with just Resource Brokerage Employees volunteering during this graveyard shift.  As a result of us being here, 40 men, women and children have a warm, safe place to sleep this evening.  If we do get standardized healthcare, John and Katie have a second career opportunity, while I continued to man the “security desk”  (and do office E-mail) they packed 45 lunches for tomorrow for the guests.  So not only did the guests receive a hot meal last night  (provided by the prior shift of volunteers) a warm, safe place to sleep all night, and receive hot breakfast in the morning (provided by the shift after ours) but they will also have a nutritious lunch packed for them as well (by our shift). 

Returning to the community is of high importance to Resource Brokerage, but in this case, I can honestly say, I for one am receiving 3 times as much as I am giving this evening, in the small difference that I am able to make in some people’s life that desperately need the help.  It definitely puts it all in perspective! 

Make it a great day!
