WASHINGTON — The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has announced a call for nominations for three prestigious awards in its Spring 2013 awards program. Nominations are being accepted now through February 1, 2013 for the association’s Professional Agent of the Year, Customer Service Representative (CSR) of the Year and Young Insurance Professional of the Year awards.

The PIA National Professional Agent of the Year Award, the association’s highest national award of distinction, is presented annually to one outstanding professional insurance agent who is a member of PIA. Nominations for this award are made by PIA state and regional affiliate associations.

“PIA’s highest honor, the Professional Agent of the Year Award, is given annually to an independent insurance agent whose impressive contributions extend past the insurance industry to include his/her community,” said PIA National President Andy Harris. “While we are honoring only one member for their work inside and outside the industry, I’d like to personally thank all nominees for their influential work and ambassadorship of our great association.”

The PIA National Customer Service Representative (CSR) of the Year Award is given annually to an outstanding agency customer service representative who works for a PIA member insurance agency. Nominations for this award are made by PIA members. The CSR of the Year Award is sponsored for the sixth year in a row by The Hartford, a member carrier of The PIA Partnership as well as a Pinnacle Partner.

The PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award is given to an outstanding employee, owner or principal of a PIA member agency who is under the age of 40 or a member of a PIA-affiliated Young Insurance Professionals association. PIA members as well as PIA state and regional affiliates may make nominations for this award, which is sponsored for the eighth year in a row by Rough Notes magazine.

All three awards will be presented during a luncheon ceremony on April 12, 2013 in Arlington, Virginia, held in conjunction with the 2013 PIA Federal Legislative Summit and Spring 2013 Board of Directors and committee meetings. Learn more and download nomination forms at www.pianet.com/awards.

PIA’s four other major national awards — the Company Award of Excellence, the Managing General Agency of the Year, the Company Representative of the Year and Excellence in Social Media — will be presented in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 21, 2013, in conjunction with the association’s fall meetings.
