The National Young Agents Committee (YAC) of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America presented the Georgia Young Agents Committee with the first ever Hall of Fame award on Friday, September 9 during the annual Young Agents Leadership Institution in Chicago. In order to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, Georgia needed to win the award for Outstanding InVEST Supporter Award
Upon being nominated for the InVEST award, Robbie Moore, Young Agents Immediate Past Chairman said, “Georgia YAC worked extremely hard this year to assist in making the next generation aware of and excited about insurance. We were able to connect with students, build a solid volunteer list, and raise a sizable amount of money for InVEST. During our initial planning meeting, following my installation as YAC Chairman, I asked each committee member to make a push for InVEST in his or her respective regions of the state.”
Bryan Griffis, Georgia YAC Invest Chairman, took Robbie’s charge and ran with it. “It was truly a collaborative effort to win this award,” Bryan commented. “We spoke with schools to let them know that the industry is looking for good people. We let them know about the job opportunities a career in insurance could provide and connected them with a national organization that could help with the training.”
In addition to taking home the awards for InVEST and Hall Of Fame, Georgia also won the award for Outstanding Political Involvement lead by the efforts of the current chairman, Jimbo Floyd, for its record-setting year in young agent contributions to InsurPac.
