February 2022 Member News
From the Executive's Desk
We are excited about this year’s convention at the Sheraton Oceanfront – Virginia Beach.
First of all, the hotel is finishing up extensive renovations to the guest rooms and common areas. They are even bringing in a Mellow Mushroom restaurant on the lower level. It will be fantastic. Come check it out.
Secondly, our format for this year will be very dynamic with highly successful agents from around the country and from Virginia as our presenters. They will share their strategies to reach more customers and make more sales. Billy Wagner and Brandon Smith headline this group, and you will feel their energy and enthusiasm. They are two of the movers and shakers in insurance.
Exhibit booths will soon go on sale. We are limiting the number of booths, so get your booth reserved as soon as you can so you don’t get shut out.
Mark your calendar for June 29 & 30th, and we will see you at the beach.

Introducing, The Agent Experience
As an insurance agent, relationships are at the core of what you do. PIA’s new program, The Agent Experience, was created to expand your views about building relationships in a virtual world. Take the Agency Experience self-assessment to see where you stand in terms of opportunity and how you operate. This program contains videos of agents’ real-life experiences, tip sheets, and a resource hub to help you build and grow relationships online.
