WASHINGTON — The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has announced a call for nominations for three prestigious awards in its 2015 Spring Awards Program. Nominations are being accepted now through January 23, 2015 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.

“Having been a member of the Awards Committee the past few years, I have seen first-hand dedication all of our nominees share toward serving their consumers and communities,” said PIA National President Richard A. Clements. “We bestow our highest honor, the Professional Agent of the Year Award, on an independent insurance agent who embodies the giving spirit of our association and an unwavering sense of responsibility to their clients and fellow man. It is truly humbling and gratifying to know that I am surrounded by such exceptional agents within our PIA Family.”

The PIA National Customer Service Representative 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 eighth 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 tenth year in a row by Rough Notes magazine.

All three awards will be presented during a luncheon ceremony on Friday, March 27, 2015, in Arlington, Virginia, held in conjunction with the 2015 PIA Federal Legislative Summit and our Spring Governance 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 New Orleans, Louisiana, on September 18, 2015, in conjunction with the association’s Fall Governance Meetings.
