PIA National has announced that nominations are being accepted now through July 15, 2016, for four prestigious national awards: the Company Award of Excellence, Company Representative of the Year, Managing General Agency of the Year and Excellence in Social Media awards.

The PIA National Company Award of Excellence honors an insurance company that demonstrates a commitment to the American Agency System and seeks to further the interests of professional independent insurance agents by creating a better business environment. PIA places a very high value on its relationships with its carrier partners.

PIA members as well as PIA state and regional affiliates may make nominations for this award.

The PIA National Company Representative of the Year Award recognizes the professionalism and unique contributions of an outstanding company representative. Nominees are judged on their professional education, experience and ability; their contributions to the American Agency System in general and PIA in particular; their support of individual, independent insurance agents; their involvement in community affairs; and their performance as an industry spokesperson.

Nominations for this award are made solelyby PIA state and regional affiliates. However, in states receiving service directly from PIA National, individual PIA members may submit nominations for the Company Representative of the Year Award.

The PIA National Managing General Agency of the Year Award is given annually to recognize the outstanding achievement of a managing general agency in furthering the interests of agents, along with a commitment to the agency system and successful efforts to create a better business environment for professional insurance agents.

Nominations for this award are made by individual PIA members as well as PIA state and regional affiliate associations.

The PIA National Excellence in Social Media Award honors a PIA member agency that uses non-traditional communication tools to effectively further the goals of the organization. An agency may use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, blogs and other social media outlets to creatively promote programs, build upon an existing brand and introduce products and services to an expandable customer base.

Nominations for this award are made by individual PIA members as well as PIA state and regional affiliate associations. The seventh annual Excellence in Social Media Award is sponsored by the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).

All four awards will be presented during a luncheon ceremony on September 23, 2016, in Omaha, Nebraska, held in conjunction with PIA’s 2016 Fall Governance Meetings.
