The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents announced that nominations are open for three national awards.

Candidates names are being accepted between now and Feb. 24 for the Alexandria, Va.-based association’s Professional Agent of the Year Award, the PIA National Customer Service Representative of the Year Award and the inaugural PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award.

All three awards will be presented during a luncheon on April 8 in Arlington, Va., during the 2006 PIA Federal Legislative Summit.

PIA’s two other major national awards — the Company Award of Excellence and the Company Representative of the Year — will be presented Sept. 9 in Savannah, Ga., during the association’s fall meetings.
