Welcome to Our Website!
Thank you for your support of PIA and the independent insurance agency system of Kentucky. Our industry is ever-evolving, and at PIAK we strive to keep you ahead of the changes. We’ve given our website a complete make-over in order to deliver valuable information and resources to our fellow professionals.
One of our most visited links continues to be our Calendar of Events, where you’ll find an up-to-date listing of the many CE options and certification programs offered through your PIA. The new calendar has many improved features, including a “Month View” option to easily map out your schedule, quick export to your own calendar and tracking of your class schedule, payments and CE credits. The educational offerings are available to members and non-members alike. You’ll also find information on our premier event of the year, our Annual Meeting, coming March 20-21. I hope to see you there!
One of the new member benefits that I’m most excited about is our unique “CE Pass”. For just $45 a year, your licensed staff who do not yet hold a designation can receive unlimited online CE credit. Our partnership with Kaplan makes this fabulous opportunity possible
Beyond the event calendar, you’ll find is an easy-to-navigate site, but with many layers of assets to assist you, your team and your agency. Our dedication to supporting agents and agencies is evident when you spend a moment reviewing our many valuable Agent/Agency Assistance programs. Marketing resources abound, including the Agency Marketing Guide, the PIA Branding Program and a variety of discounted marketing services. Insurance products; both to sell and to provide discounted coverages for you and your agency, including special E&O pricing, help you better protect your clients and your business. On both the state and national level, PIA is focused on the opportunities in cyber insurance, and has developed “Cyber 101”, an industry-leading resource to educate you and your business clients about appropriate protection from cyber risks.
More than a website, our new platform is also a network, where you can connect, message and post. We, the PIAK members, are our most valuable resource, and please use this network to share your experiences, learn from the community, find employees and to establish more meaningful connections. You’ll hear more from me here, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Of course many of these resources are exclusive to our valued members. If you are not yet a PIA of Kentucky member, I personally invite you to join us. Your membership extends to your entire agency, and provides you access to all state and national benefits. For an extremely small investment, you’ll be rewarded richly. I personally attribute a good deal of my professional development and success to my affiliation with PIA, and I’m confident that you will have the same experience.
