Pictured: 2021 NIBA Young Professional Broker of the Year winners, Vero Young Broker Alumni members and Vero Senior Leaders arrive at the village of Cobargo, NSW.

“Charity work and fundraising to support communities affected by severe weather events have become an integral part of the Vero-sponsored NIBA Warren Tickle Memorial Award Program. Each year, we ask the state winners to work together to select a community or a local charity affected by a major weather-related event. They’ll then present the case to a panel of senior Vero executives for the opportunity to receive funding towards their revival,” said Anthony Pagano, Head of Intermediated Distribution.

In 2020, the five state winners elected to support the Cobargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund (CCBRF) with a grant of $25,000, courtesy of Vero. This year, the goal of the ‘Road to Cobargo’ journey was to meet with grant recipients and CCBRF representatives to witness how the Vero Young Broker Alumni grant helped the community through to recovery. “This first-hand experience challenged us on how we see our roles as insurance professionals, and how the broking industry can more effectively give back to the community on individual and industry levels,” said Brad Dalton, Strategic Advisor, Commercial & Intermediated.

After meeting with Director of the Little Yuin Pre-School, one of the recipients of funding from CCBRF, the whole group got their hands dirty helping with restoration and renovation projects throughout the children’s playground and garden beds.
