SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest independent brokerage firms in the United States, today announces its partnership with Acteva, the leading provider of Event, Class Registration and Private Community software.  Heffernan now provides inexpensive event insurance coverage through an online portal on the Acteva website.
