The award was presented March 24, 2012 by the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) and was sponsored by the Rough Notes Company, Inc. Donna Chiapperino is the 2012 recipient of the PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award.

“Dedicated, vocal, energetic, passionate, enthusiastic and an advocate for young agents – Donna Chiapperino is all of these and more,” said PIA National Vice President/Treasurer John G. Lee, who presented the award. “Donna’s many efforts to advance the cause of young agents by her work with the YIPs are widely known. She has been a mentor and a role model for the young insurance professionals that we need to attract to our ranks.”

The PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award recognizes outstanding achievement by a young insurance professional. Donna was honored for her many activities in support of professional insurance agents and her efforts to attract more young people into the insurance industry.

“Donna should be commended for her efforts to help the New York Young Insurance Professionals organization grow more successful, and for all she did to help establish and build the Young Insurance Professionals nationally,” said Diane Fowler, executive director of PIA of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Hampshire, who accepted the award on Chiapperino’s behalf. “Donna asked me to tell everyone how honored she is to receive the National Young Insurance Professional Award, and to thank PIA National, Rough Notes and everyone in PIA including current PIA of New York president Rich Savino--who encouraged her to join the New York Young Insurance Professionals nearly 18 years ago and who helped her to grow as a PIA and YIP leader.”

The PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award was sponsored by Rough Notes for the seventh year in a row. “Encouraging young people to consider a career as a professional insurance agent must be a top priority for all of us,” Lee said. “We are particularly pleased to partner with the Rough Notes Company in this important effort.”
