WASHINGTON – The new national officers of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) were installed during the group’s September 23, 2012 Board of Directors meeting held in Baltimore, Maryland. Each of the officers will serve one-year terms that begin on October 1, 2012 and run through September 30, 2013.

Andrew C. Harris, CIC, CPCU, CRM, ARM, AIS, of Colts Neck, New Jersey becomes President; John G. Lee, CIC, CPIA, LUTCF, of Fredericksburg, Virginia becomes President-elect; Richard A. Clements, CIC, of Chalmette, Louisiana becomes Vice President/Treasurer; Robert W. Hansen, Jr., CPIA, LUTCF, of Omaha, Nebraska becomes Secretary/Assistant Treasurer; and Thomas C. Adderhold, CIC, of Duluth, Georgia becomes Immediate Past President.

“This is a critical time for professional insurance agents, for our industry and for our economy,” said Harris. “Agents need the unique value that PIA provides and the unabashed aggressiveness with which PIA advances the interests of Main Street agents everywhere.”

“In these challenging and changing times, PIA is determined to leave no stone unturned in the support of the Professional Insurance Agent,” Harris said. “Working together, we can continue to use PIA’s considerable clout on Capitol Hill, with the NAIC, with state insurance regulators and with state insurance legislators for the benefit of our members. PIA has positive relationships with our carrier partners, a strong network of state and regional affiliate associations and a level of expertise that cannot be matched. PIA is the best agents association, bar none, and will remain a major, independent force in our industry for many years to come.”

Founded in 1931, PIA is a national trade association that 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 members are Local Agents Serving Main Street America (SM). PIA's web address is www.pianet.com.
