Iowa State University Career Fair
Commstock attended the ISU Fall Career Fair October 13th , 2016.  We were pleased to meet so many young people looking for internships and future careers in risk management.  We look forward to returning next year.  Go Cyclones!

Clay County Fair
Commstock was the lead sponsor for a Customer Appreciation Event hosted by Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former CIA security contractor stationed in Benghazi, Libya who helped save over 20 American lives while defending a US security annex against terrorists.  Mr. Paronto spoke to our clients about what really happened in Benghazi and how his team displayed courage under fire.  This event is told in the book and subsequent movie, “13 Hours”. His story of patriotism was inspiring and reminded us how we can all do our part to make America great.

Trade Shows
We look forward to attending the Farm Progress Show later this year!  Stay tuned for more information!
