Shawn Carter is with Capital Premium Financing. He’s one of a group of PIA Oregon/Idaho members working on the formation of a young insurance professionals organization.
He said this group will solve a number of unique challenges to those just entering the industry and — even — for those who’ve been in insurance for quite awhile. The Young Insurance Professionals Association (YIP) offers professional development, the opportunity to network with peers and ideas on how to make positive contributions to their community.
“We want to help those coming into the industry for the first time to understand the different processes and the different ways they can grow and progress as an agent,” Carter told Weekly Industry News. “It’s an opportunity to network with other young agents.”
Here’s the first meeting details:
Thursday, February 21, 2019
5:00pm to 8:00pm
RAM Breweries and Restaurant
515 SE 12th Street
Salem, Oregon 97301
Carter said the association is specifically set up for people 35 and under. However, involvement can also apply to those 35 and over that are new to the insurance industry.
“The focus is to help the perpetuation of the industry. A lot of baby boomers are retiring now and we see a lot of agencies being handed down to a son or a daughter, or other family members,” Carter said. “This helps these young agents and the next generation of the industry with networking opportunities.”
PIA Oregon and the YIP leadership are looking for other leaders to fill important positions within the association. Needs range from committee members to YIP leadership.
Carter said the point of YIP is to present something new to attending agents during each event. This is practical, up-to-date information that can be immediately applied to the next work day and at client meetings.
