PIA Management Services Inc., the umbrella corporation that manages the Glenmont, New York, based Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) associations, has reached an agreement with PIA National to assume management of the PIA state affiliate in Vermont.
Formerly, PIA members were part of a merged association, which included PIA and Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers (IIAB) members to comprise the Vermont Insurance Agents Association.
Membership in PIAVT will be available to independent agents and insurance-related businesses affiliated with independent agents starting in November. Initial benefits will include: agents E&O and other coverages; education; information; creative services; networking opportunities and advocacy.
The Glenmont-based PIA partnership has evolved over more than 75 years, beginning in the 1940s as the Mutual Agents Association. In 1977, the Professional Insurance Agents identity was established at a national level and adopted by each of the respective state affiliates, in response to the expanding markets accessed by member agencies.
