After winning the Outstanding Young Agents Committee of the Year award last year at the IIABA’s Fall Leadership Conference (click here for my blog post on that award), the Georgia Young Agents Committee took home two awards from this year’s IIABA Fall Leadership Conference, which was held two weeks in San Antonio, Texas. This time around, Georgia’s YAC won the Outstanding Membership Development Award for excellent achievement in recruiting and maintaining young agent participation in association activities and the Outstanding Communications Award for achievement in establishing and maintaining an excellent communication vehicle for the young agents in Georgia.
According to the buzz at last week’s IIAG Fall Conference in Macon, this was the first time that one young agents committee had won two national awards in the same year. Over the past three years, Georgia’s YAC has won 4 of the top 5 awards given by IIABA to young agents committees. (Click here to read about the winners of this year’s other national awards.)
Congratulations for the latest two awards go to Brooks Zeigler, who was the chair of YAC during the time period covered by the awards, as well as to Kelli Dean, the Vice Chair, and Jarrett Bridges, the Secretary-Treasurer, during that time, and the other members of the board of directors and committee chairs. What I said in my post last year remains true today, the future of the Big I is in good hands with these outstanding young agents and its strong Young Agents Committee in general.
