    YAC Apply Now ButtonThe Florida Association of Insurance Agents Young Agents Council was created in 2006 to give young agents, and those new to the field, the leadership and professional skills needed to practice their craft and perpetuate the Independent Agency System. Membership is open to all FAIA members, licensed or not, who have been in the business fewer than 10 years or are younger than age 40. Young Agents Council members meet regularly to develop a camaraderie that builds strong and lasting professional relationships.

    The Young Agents Council can help you:

    • Expand your professional network to include not only other agents, but also carrier representatives and other industry professionals
    • Strengthen industry connections and make new ones
    • Get more involved in your community (SmartStart4Kids and local projects)
    • Develop leadership skills (Florida Future Insurance Leaders, participation in task forces)
    • Learn how to get more involved in the political process and advocate for important agent issues   

    Vision and Mission

    The FAIA Young Agents Council serves as the unified voice for young agents in Florida and as the structure with which to perpetuate and nurture the future of the Independent Insurance Agency System.

    Through effective leadership and stewardship of resources, our mission is to:

    • Exemplify professionalism and ethical behavior
    • Be involved in the legislative process surrounding our industry
    • Promote good community relations
    • Foster an environment in which young insurance professionals can interact with each other resulting in successful career paths for young agents and growth for their agencies.
