The Professional Insurance Agents of New York State Inc. announced that it is seeking nominations for the Arthur I. Moll and Bernard I. Kozel Memorial Scholarships. The deadline for nominations is Friday, Dec. 12, 2003.

“Selected individuals will receive tuition to two Certified Insurance Service Representative seminars conducted by PIANY,” said the announcement. Arthur I. Moll was a past president of PIANY and PIA National. Bernard I. Kozel was a longtime member of the insurance profession.
