    The PIA Partnership

    The PIA Partnership is the premier way for carriers to partner with PIA and enable independent agents to succeed. The Partnership is comprised of senior insurance company executives in charge of independent agency initiatives for their respective companies. Each year these industry leaders work to identify an area of mutual opportunity in the agency-company partnership. They then conduct solution-oriented research and create a tool which is made available to PIA member agents and the member company's appointed agents. Recent tools  include Small Business Insurance & The InternetThe Voice of the Commercial Lines Customer, Closing the Gap – Growth & Profit, Agency Touch Points — The Voice of The Personal Lines Customer, Reaching Gen Y, the Practical Guide to Successful Planning and Perpetuation Central.
