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 thirteenth year in a row by Rough Notes magazine.
All three awards will be presented during a gala luncheon ceremony on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, in Arlington, Virginia, held in conjunction with the 2018 PIA Federal Legislative Summit and 2018 PIA National Spring Governance Meetings.
