Oregon Young Insurance Professionals — See You Thursday

Posted By staff reporter, Tuesday, February 19, 2019


 

As the cliché goes, in case you didn’t get the memo, the first meeting of PIA Oregon/Idaho’s Young Insurance Professionals Association (OYIP) is this Thursday in Salem, Oregon. We’d love to have you join us.

 

Here are the location and time details:

 

Thursday, February 21, 2019

5:00pm to 8:00pm

RAM Brewery and Restaurant

515 SE 12th Street

Salem, Oregon 97301

 

Shawn Carter is with Capital Premium Financing. He’s one of a group of PIA Oregon/Idaho members that founded the Oregon YIP’s group. He said the group’s focus is on insurance professionals 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 told Weekly Industry News. “This helps these young agents and the next generation of the industry with networking opportunities.”

 

Since insurance is an industry with unique challenges, the association’s founders are providing assistance and mentorship of professional development via the sharing of business tips and other information from peers and older professionals.

 

Networking — Carter said — is the main purpose of the new group.

 

“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 said. “It’s an opportunity to network with other young agents.”

 

Another purpose of the first meeting is to grow the association with more involved Leadership and service for Oregon’s Education and Conference Committees and the Oregon Board of Directors.

 

This is just the first meeting. Others will come from this event and each meeting will be packed with practical, up-to-date information that attendees can apply immediately.

PIA Oregon Forms Young Insurance Professionals Group

Posted By staff reporter, Tuesday, January 15, 2019

 OYIP First Event

 

The PIA Western Alliance is starting Oregon’s first young insurance professionals organization. It’s called Young Insurance Professionals association (YIP) and board member Shawn Carter of Capital Premium Finance said the purpose of the organization is to offer young agents the opportunity to develop professionally, network with peers, participate in industry activities and make positive contributions to the 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 said. “It’s an opportunity to network with other young agents.”

Carter noted while this is specifically created for people 35 and under, it also applies to those 35 and above that are new to the insurance industry. All attending the YIP events will benefit. Part of that benefit comes from involvement of older, more experienced PIA member agents and company members in YIP.

“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.”

 

The first meeting of the OYIPs

5:00pm to 8:00pm

RAM Breweries and Restaurant

515 SE 12th Street

Salem, Oregon 97301

 

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.
