FAIA Young Agents Council

FAIA's Young Agents Council believes in strength through involvement and offers opportunities for young agents to develop leadership skills, participate in legislative issues, train for sales and management needs, and communicate ideas with highly motivated, sharp minded people. 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.

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's Future Insurance Leaders, participation in task forces, annual Sales & Leadership Conference)
  • Learn how to get more involved in the political process and advocate for important agent issues
