  • To promote good community relations.
  • To foster an environment in which young insurance professionals can interact with each other resulting in successful career paths for young agents and growth for their agencies.

Get Involved with IIANC Young Agents

The IIANC Young Agents are an active, dynamic group, and we encourage all Young Agents in your agency to get involved in the Young Agents’ many activities and projects.

  • Events – IIANC hosts several events which offer great opportunities for Young Agents to network with other Young Agents and company representatives to find markets and build valuable relationships.
    - Annual Convention
          - InsurEXPO
          - Young Agents Development Conference (October 26-27, 2017 - Downtown Charlotte, NC)   

  • Political Involvement - Young Agents in North Carolina lead the country in political activity and advocacy efforts. Our Young Agents have historically raised more money for our Political Action Committees (PAC's) than most states raise from their entire membership. Young Agents are encouraged to participate in both InsurPAC and NC Small Business PAC and attend our association’s legislative events.
          - National IIABA Legislative Conference in Washington, DC
          - Donate to PAC and Insure Your Future    

  • Community Service Projects - IIANC Young Agents are continuously involved with a service project to help our community and industry. Past projects include working with the Autism Society of North Carolina, Victory Junction, Habitat for Humanity and Special Olympics NC, the Ronald McDonald Houses of NC and a scholarship endowment for insurance majors at UNC-Charlotte.

    Our Young Agents are currently working to support the Make-A-Wish chapters in North Carolina and invite all members and company partners to get involved with their fundraising and volunteer efforts. Learn more >>>
  • Recruitment & Development - Young Agents are active in the search for new employees in the industry. To assist with this need, Young Agents are encouraging the introduction of insurance education in our high schools and community colleges. Young Agents are also involved in career recruitment programs at North Carolina universities with insurance majors - Appalachian State University, UNC-Charlotte and East Carolina University.
