PIA members: What keeps you up at night?

The link to the 2017 National Underwriter/PIA Independent Agent Survey will soon land in your inbox. Tell us what’s on your mind.

Independent agents, we want to know what keeps you up at night – and now we’re asking PIA members to share their individual opinions and perspective. 

National Underwriter Property & Casualty, in partnership with the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) and Flaspöhler, part of NMG Consulting, is conducting the 2017 National Underwriter/PIA Independent Agent Survey, a project whose findings will provide deep, revealing insight into the challenges, needs, and demographics of independent Property & Casualty insurance agents across the U.S. 

The survey is being hosted online by renowned intelligence firm Flaspöhler, part of NMG Consulting, with which National Underwriter has enjoyed a long and successful editorial relationship.

This project provides a voice to independent agents to share with the entire P&C industry exactly what’s on their minds. Among other things, it will reveal what they desire most from carriers; how they perceive the P&C market and changing distribution channels; how their commissions are structured; what their greatest technology challenges are; and what these professionals need to help grow their books of business, among many other matters.

The questionnaire, which was crafted by NU, PIA and Flaspöhler, and asks specific questions pertinent to your business, is being sent again this week to PIA’s national membership. We encourage PIA members to complete the survey, to enable us to better serve your editorial needs.

PIA members can look for the e-mail invitation to the survey link beginning this week.

Key highlights of this research project will be shared in print and online as a data-rich cover feature of charts, graphs and editorial analysis in National Underwriter’s March print edition, and right here on PropertyCasualty360.com.

“PIA is pleased to partner with National Underwriter and Flaspöhler in this groundbreaking survey,” said PIA National President Gary Blackwell. “This provides a powerful opportunity to PIA members to share their views with the entire industry and focus attention on their needs. I urge PIA members to participate.”

“As we near the finish line on this project, we want to hear from PIA members about the issues that concern them most and directly affect their agencies,” added Shawn Moynihan, National Underwriter’s Editor-in-Chief. “When the link lands in your inbox, make your voice heard.”
