Every year, the PIA adds new member benefits that increase the value of membership. PIA National says today a PIA membership is worth over $26,500. Joining — or retaining your membership in the association is a no-brainer.
PIA membership gives you access to resources, products and services that make it easy to run your business. And this is not just day-to-day but — with some strategic planning on your part — planning for the future.
Your membership gives you:
$5,200 in business building tools. These range from Breeze Disability Insurance to PIA Market Access to marketing support in other areas.
$9,000 in agency management tools. To name a few, PIA gives you tools to manage an agency with efficiency by giving your staff resources like Ascent payments, PIA’s 401(k), tools to help with hiring and the PIA Blueprint for Agency Success.
$1,000 in advocacy. The PIA’s advocacy runs from work done by PIA National in Congress to lobbying in state legislatures. These efforts protect the needs of independent insurance agents and agencies from regulators that sometimes don’t have your best interests at heart.
Advocacy comes in the form of work on crop insurance, flood insurance, the use of noncompete agreements, consumer privacy, efforts to insure a state-based insurance regulatory system and more.
$300 in education benefits. PIA offers ample opportunities for agents to upgrade skills and stay current with CE and licensing requirements.
$11,000 in PIA membership exclusives. You have access to tools from PIA Partnership, discounts on insurance products, information on how to connect and network in your community and with other agents. You also get a subscription to PIA Connection and have access to the PIA Advocacy Blog.
PRICELESS. The credibility that comes from access to insurance industry articles and commentary that make sure the PIA message is heard — a message that emphasizes the views of independent agents and that makes sure those views are accurately represented.
