Hudson Valley RAP celebrates 10 years

Storm Sandy still is on everyone's mind as PIANY looks to the future

PIANY President Alan Plafker, CPIA, delivered the keynote address to a full house for the 10th Hudson Valley RAP.

Marking a year since Storm Sandy traveled up the East Coast, some 250 insurance producers converged on the Professional Insurance Agents of New York State Inc.'s 10th Hudson Valley Regional Awareness Program. This milestone event, which was delayed a year because of Sandy, was held at the end of October, at the Doubletree Hotel, Tarrytown, N.Y.

"It's hard to believe that a year ago today, this event, which was about to celebrate its 10th anniversary in this very location, was canceled because of what we now know became the storm of the century," said newly elected PIANY President Alan Plafker, CPIA.

The daylong event featured an award presentation; education sessions; a trade show featuring some 60 exhibitors; an inaugural address by newly elected PIANY Alan Plafker, CPIA, of Member Brokerage Services LLC in Briarwood, N.Y.; and more.

Plans are underway for next year's Hudson Valley RAP, watch your PIA publications for details.
