House Resolution Cites Oregon Agent's Professionalism

WASHINGTON, December 21, 2005  - Terry R. Adams of Ashland, Oregon, the Immediate Past President of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA), has received a commendation in the Congressional Record recognizing his dedication and professionalism. The commendation was extended by Rep. Greg Walden (R-Oregon).

"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to highlight and commend the service of Mr. Terry R. Adams, a resident of Oregon's Second Congressional District, for his service to his community and the nation as a member of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents," said Rep. Walden in remarks extended December 17, 2005 and printed in the Congressional Record. "Mr. Adams recently completed his term as the president of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents and had previously served in many positions of responsibility in the Association for more than 18 years."

"This honor is especially fitting," said PIA National Executive Vice President and CEO Len Brevik. "Terry Adams' belief in PIA as the association of choice for all independent insurance agents is real.  It comes from his heart.  And his effectiveness in bettering PIA through his vision and steadfast leadership has positioned our association for success for many years to come."

Adams has twice been honored as the Professional Agent of the Year by the Professional Insurance Agents of Oregon/Idaho, first in 1996 and again in 2001. He is principal of the Reinholdt & O'Harra Insurance agency in Ashland, Oregon, where he has spent his entire professional career advising consumers about how to obtain the best insurance coverage for their needs.

"Mr. Adams' dedication to the highest standards of professionalism as a professional insurance agent has earned him the respect of friends, colleagues and the insurance industry as a whole," added Rep. Walden. "Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the opportunity to rise today to share with my colleagues the good work that Mr. Adams has done throughout his career as a member of the insurance community, and again congratulate him on the completion of his term as the president of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents."

Founded in 1931, PIA is a national trade association which represents member insurance agents and their employees who sell and service all kinds of insurance, but specialize in coverage of automobiles, homes and businesses. PIA will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2006.
