TORRANCE, Calif. — Organizers of Agent Summit 2012 announced that Gregory Arroyo, executive editor of F&I and Showroom magazine, has agreed to return as advisory board chair for the second annual event, which is scheduled for March 12–14 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

“Last year’s board did an amazing job in making sure our agenda addressed the issues impacting agents and their customers,” Arroyo said. “That’s why I’m excited to chair the board again this year.

• Joe Becker, CNA National Warranty Corporation
