PIA National has announced a call for nominations for three prestigious national awards. Nominations are being accepted between now and January 30, 2009 for the association's Professional Agent of the Year Award, the PIA National Customer Service Representative (CSR) of the Year Award and the PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award.

The PIA National Professional Agent of the Year Award, the association's highest national award of distinction, is presented annually to one outstanding professional insurance agent who is a member of PIA. Nominations for this award are made by PIA state and regional affiliate associations.

"To be named by one's PIA peers throughout the nation as Agent of the Year is truly a distinction that has no parallel," said PIA National President Kenneth R. Auerbach, Esq. "As an agent-driven association, the recognition afforded each year to one of our fellow member agents has special significance."

The PIA National Customer Service Representative (CSR) of the Year Award is given annually to an outstanding agency customer service representative who works for a PIA member insurance agency. Nominations for this award are made by PIA members. The CSR of the Year Award is sponsored by The Hartford, a member carrier of The Partnership (formerly the PIA-CCEO).

The PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award is given to an outstanding employee, owner or principal of a PIA member agency who is under the age of 40 or a member of a PIA-affiliated Young Insurance Professionals association. Both PIA members as well as PIA state and regional affiliates may make nominations for this award, which is sponsored by Rough Notes magazine.

All three awards will be presented during a luncheon on April 4, 2009 in Arlington, Virginia, held in conjunction with the 2009 PIA Federal Legislative Summit and Spring 2009 PIA National Board of Directors and committee meetings. Nomination forms are available here.
