Why are programs like these so important to our industry?
Think about the best people in your office. Now imagine they’re gone. How will you replace them? Where will you recruit educated young agents, CSRs, and managers.

This is a serious question that all insurance industry owners and executives need to address. There is a shortage of new talent in the field, a scarcity of bright young men and women to lead businesses through the next three or four decades. Boomers are retiring and Gen Xers are aging. Individuals of the Millennial Generation are needed to help revitalize the industry and serve insurance consumers. However, it is the job of current industry professionals to help encourage them into the industry and compete for talented individuals available in today's marketplace. It is the responsibility of IIABNJ and independent agents to demonstrate the vast opportunities, and range of skill sets, that exist for young professionals in the insurance industry.
