Young Insurance Professionals

The Young Insurance Professionals Committee was created in 2014 to offer young agents and new entrants in the insurance industry a forum for education and networking for their professional development while increasing involvement in the industry and the Association.  
Mission Statement
The fundamental mission is to nurture the careers of individual members of the IIABAZ who are either young or new to the industry. We hope to develop a peer group of young insurance professionals.

Our objectives are:
  • Provide opportunities to foster professional and interpersonal relationships.
  • Help develop technical knowledge and expertise.
  • Increase Membership involvement in the political process and advocate for important industry issues.
  • To better the industry's image through public relations programs.
  • Help improve communication skills.
  • Refine marketing and sales abilities.
  • Promotion and representation of common business interests.
  • Develop an interest in becoming involved with the IIABAZ in a leadership role.
  • To provide a resource to state and national associations in carrying out their programs.
Membership in the Young Insurance Professionals Committee will NOT require any additional “fees” or “dues” and will be led by the members of the Committee.  

Membership requires that your agency or company is an IIABAZ Member or Associate Member.
