Hudson Valley RAP 2016
Be active, have a strong web presence and be aware of emerging E&O trends
More than 200 insurance professionals from across the state gathered on Oct. 20 in the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, to enjoy a day of networking, education and more as part of PIANY’s annual Hudson Valley Regional Awareness Program.
During the event’s luncheon newly elected PIANY President John Parsons II, CIC, CPIA, AAI, delivered his first formal remarks as president. In his speech, Parsons stressed the importance of reaching out to younger generations and setting an example of how rewarding a career in insurance can be. He also took time to reflect on all PIANY has accomplished over his time with the association and encouraged everyone in attendance to become more involved in the association.
“Because you are here today, you’ve demonstrated that you are committed to our industry and dedicated to improving yourself and your business to better serve your clients,” he said. “I applaud you for your work, and ask each of you, as the best marketing examples our industry can have, to take a more active role in PIA.”
Parsons wrapped up his speech by expressing his hopes and plans as president of PIANY, “I promise, this year and beyond, I will work with PIA to continue to bring you the best programs and benefits that we can to help you build your businesses.”
