What is their purpose?
The MAIA Young Agents Committee (YAC) operates as a volunteer committee. It encourages young insurance professionals to expand their industry knowledge and network while increasing involvement and awareness of MAIA's advocacy initiatives, products, and services.
Do I qualify to join in the activities the committee is putting on?
To qualify as a 'Young Agent,' you must be a member of the Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents (MAIA), have worked in the insurance industry for under five (5) years, OR are 40 years of age or younger. A "young agent" does not have to be a licensed producer. (Some YAC events, like the golf tournament, are also open to everyone.)
What if I have questions? How do I join to get notifications of the Young Agents events?
Please get in touch with Heather Kramer!
