June 2022 PIANC News
From the Executive's Desk
As we head into summer, there is much to do here at PIA of NC.
First of all, we are looking to bring some new people onto our Board of Directors. It’s time to pass the torch and engage more of our young agents. If you are interested in serving on our Board, please contact me at Kevin@pianc.net or (804) 486-4218. Installation of officers/new Board members will be on August 25th at our Conference in Winston Salem.
Speaking of the Annual Conference, this year’s will be packed with CE classes as we will run concurrent P&C and L&H classes to accommodate all agents. We have another fantastic team of instructors and we urge you to come out and get 12 CE hours. Also, please come and visit our exhibitors at our sold-out Trade Fair.
Anthony “Tony” Curti, PIA National President, will share his thoughts on the industry and what PIA is doing to address the challenges. Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey will provide an update on the North Carolina insurance issues.
Check out our new website www.pianc.net where you can register for education classes and the Conference. We welcome your feedback.
Until next month ….
Kevin Kowar, CIC, AU

Cyber Security Question of the Month:
What is ransomware?
Ransomware prevents you and your customers from accessing your computer systems by encrypting files so they’re unusable. To release them, the criminals ask for something in return, usually money or information.
62% of consumers who buy from direct writers say they use the internet to find insurance. You need to be online to win their business. Learn how to connect and transform your agency to compete in a digital world.
