The Professional Insurance Agents of Florida (PIA) has received special recognition for achieving an unprecedented 50 consecutive months of positive gains in membership. PIA of Florida received the Special Recognition of Achievement award during a national PIA awards ceremony in Portland, Oregon.

"Our national association takes great pride in the achievements in membership growth by PIA of Florida, which set the pace for all of us," said PIA National President Ray L. Peretti. "PIA of Florida was among the first to achieve the kind of phenomenal growth our association is now experiencing on a national level."

Meanwhile, membership in the PIA Western Alliance is up. Western Alliance Executive Vice President Clark Sitzes noted that PIA nationally has grown "by somewhere around 800 members in the past year, and it's the first time PIA has shown positive growth in 17 years." PIA of South Carolina doubled its membership in the past year.

A total of 22 PIA state affiliates were recognized with special awards last month for membership growth: Alabama, the PIA Group (California, Nevada, Arizona & New Mexico); Florida; Georgia; Indiana; Kentucky; Maine; Maryland; Minnesota; Missouri; Montana; Nebraska; Ohio; Iowa; New Jersey; North Dakota; South Carolina; Tennessee; Washington & Alaska; Wisconsin; Colorado; and Massachusetts.
