LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual Agent Summit announced that Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc. (UDS), will serve a fifth consecutive term as advisory board chair. The 2017 event is scheduled for May 21–24 at Paris Las Vegas.

“As an experienced and accomplished agent, Randy has his thumb on the pulse of our industry,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom. “We fully expect he and his team to produce another hard-hitting and action-backed agenda no agent can ignore.”

The advisory board’s principal task is to decide upon which topics are of pressing importance to agents and invite speakers to address them. In the course of Crisorio’s tenure, the scope of the event has expanded from its original focus on F&I training to include sessions devoted to agency development, dealer recruitment and relations, reinsurance, new technology, and much more.

To build the event’s agenda, Crisorio and his team rely heavily on suggestions from agents and other attendees. Past feedback has led to a number of new topics and features, including a block of sessions open only to agent principals.
