John G. “Johnny” Lee, CIC, CPIA, LUTCF, of Fredericksburg, Virginia, was installed as President of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) during the Association’s annual meeting on September 22, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lee will serve a one-year term that begins on October 1, 2013 and runs through September 30, 2014“Our association has just gone thru a renewal and rebirth,” said Lee. “A lot of the credit goes to Andy and Ron Von Haden, our Executive Vice President. They helped guide us on the right path, in conjunction with our executive committee and members of our dedicated staff. We are headed in the right direction, with our goals in sight. We can achieve great success by all of us working together to promote the advantages of being a PIA member. Our future is bright. I am very optimistic about our future and fully committed to the success of PIA.”

Lee outlined four priorities for his term, all focused on sustaining the positive momentum generated over the past two years. He said the Membership Marketing Campaign is a win-win for both PIA affiliates and PIA National that will continue; he announced a renewed program of visits by PIA leaders with carriers, geared to encouraging their use of the PIA logo and expanding membership in the PIA Partnership; he said the Association will continue its push to grow PIAPRO, PIA’s member-owned, member-controlled captive selling E&O exclusively to PIA members; and that PIA will continue its strong presence on federal legislative and regulatory advocacy.

“One of the reasons we have prevailed is that we have an association that shares our values – and always has our backs,” Lee said. “I am proud to say I have been a PIA member for all of my professional life. It has been one of the best business decisions I have made.”
