A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to listen to a webinar involving Georgia’s Young Agent’s Committee. The Immediate Past Chair, Ash Smith, the Chair, Brooks Zeigler, and the Vice Chair, Kelli Dean, along with Stacie King of the Big I’s office, participated in the webinar, which was broadcast nationwide by the IIABA. They described all the activities of Georgia’s YAC during 2012 that lead to it being named the Outstanding Young Agent’s Committee of the year at the IIABA Fall Conference that was held in Atlanta last September. (Click here for my blog post about the award.)
The list of activities that Georgia’s YAC engaged in was a long and varied one, with a special emphasis on educating and training their membership to be better insurance agents and leaders. Perhaps most impressive was the fact that their annual golf tournament raised over $40,000 for charity. Their use of social media to communicate with their members and encourage participation in their events seemed to be of particular interest to those young agents from other states who participated in the webinar.

As I said in my post back in September, the future of the Big I is in good hands with these outstanding young agents and its strong Young Agents Committee in general.
