The PIA Partnership
The PIA Partnership is the premier way for carriers to partner with PIA and enable independent agents to succeed. The Partnership is comprised of senior insurance company executives in charge of independent agency initiatives for their respective companies. Each year these industry leaders work to identify an area of mutual opportunity in the agency-company partnership. They then conduct solution-oriented research and create a deliverable which is made available to PIA member agents and the member company's appointed agents. Recent deliverables include Closing the Gap – Growth & Profit, Agency Touch Points — The Voice of The Customer, Reaching Gen Y, the Practical Guide to Successful Planning and Perpetuation Central.
PIA Federal Legislative Summit
The annual PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS) is a gathering of PIA members from across America who come to Washington, DC each spring to meet with their elected representatives. PIA offers companies a number of opportunities to partner with us during the FLS, PIA’s premier grassroots lobbying event. There is simply no better way for companies to demonstrate that they support their agents’ lobbying efforts than by sponsoring the PIA Federal Legislative Summit.
PIA Branding Program/Pinnacle Partner Program
The PIA Branding Program is a series of advertising and marketing tools that PIA makes available to its members so they can market their agencies in their local communities and beyond. Your sponsorship helps PIA members market their agencies and make more sales.
2013 PIA National Agency Marketing Guide
PIA members want to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to marketing their services. That’s why they turn to the PIA National Agency Marketing Guide, the new marketing bible for professional insurance agents. The 2010 edition of this print publication, with its emphasis on social media marketing, became an instant must-read. The 2011 edition capitalized on that success with a special focus on how insurance agencies can successfully use the Internet to market their services. Most recently, the 2012 edition made the case for prominently featuring personal lines offerings in an agency’s lineup and helped agency owners better understand how they can do so in a way that is profitable. We invite you to join us in the 2013 publication. Four sponsorship spots will be available in the 2013 PIA National Agency Marketing Guide for select companies serving the independent agency system. Full-page, full-color ad space is also available.
PIA National Awards
Each year PIA presents seven national awards. The prestige of receiving a PIA National award is hard to match in the insurance industry. So is the prestige of sponsoring one. Sponsorships of select company and agency awards are now available.
PIA's work in support of independent insurance agents sometimes includes the creation of a whitepaper, a report or some other type of intellectual property. Your company may benefit from sponsoring a piece of PIA’s work that is closely aligned with your own goals and organizational mission. If this opportunity interests you, we encourage you to contact us and let us know your particular areas of interest.
New Member Kits
In 2013 one sponsoring company will have the opportunity to include its tri-fold brochure in PIA National’s new member kits. These printed brochures will be located by themselves in a special slit in the left-hand pocket, along with a note from PIA identifying the company’s valued sponsorship.
PIA offers non-agents two opportunities to join our national association: a Gold Associate Membership and an Associate Membership.
Web Site Sponsor
Is there a certain issue that is important to your company? If so, consider sponsoring an issue section on PIA’s website (this website). Sponsorship of an issue section gives your company visibility throughout the year whenever someone reads an article about that issue. To see PIA’s issues, simply move your cursor over the Issues button at the top of the page.
Board of Directors Meetings
If you are looking to make an impression on PIA’s national leadership in 2013, please consider a sponsorship at one of our semi-annual board of directors meetings. A number of different opportunities are available.

If you have a specific message that you want PIA members across America to hear loud and clear, please consider an advertising package with PIA. PIA offers three advertising vehicles:
