PIA of Delaware member M. Rita Hollada, CPCU, CIC, CPIA, AAI, was honored with a PIA Lifetime Achievement award for excellence and expertise in flood insurance. The award was presented May 8, 2012 in Austin, Texas during the national conference of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Hollada, an independent insurance agent from Selbyville, Delaware, has served as PIA National’s representative to both the NFIP and the Flood Insurance Producers National Committee (FIPNC). She is recognized as one of the nation’s most experienced and knowledgeable educators about flood risk. She teaches courses on flood insurance to her fellow independent insurance agents across the country and has served as PIA’s public spokesperson on flood insurance issues.

“It is very fitting that we’re making this presentation here at the NFIP Conference where we are joined by all the NFIP staff and related industry representatives who know, respect and love you so much,” said Richard A. Clements, secretary/assistant treasurer of PIA National and its representative to the NFIP and FIPNC, who presented the award. “We’re here to publicly recognize and celebrate you – and all that you have so tirelessly, unselfishly and enthusiastically done for the NFIP program and most of all for PIA members and all insurance producers, along with their customers who are insured under the NFIP.”

“Rita, even though we know that you will be adding to your long list of accomplishments for many more years to come, you should know that you have set a very high standard, to which all of us should aspire,” Clements said. “There are very few people in our industry who know so much, have contributed so much, have achieved so much, care so much and have made such a broad impact for the better.”

PIA National was joined in the special presentation by Dorothy Doyle, assistant vice president, Hartford Specialty/WYO; Dave Treutel, chairman of FIPNC; and Denny Kuhns, FEMA division director of risk insurance.
