The Big "I" National Young Agents Committee (YAC) encourages young agents – those under 40 years of age or with less than 5 years experience in the industry – to become aware of and get involved in the activities and programs of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (the Big "I").
Young Agent Scholarships
The Big "I" Legislative Conference
April 22-24, 2015
Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.
The Big “I” national Young Agents Committee offers two different scholarships to help young agents attend the Big “I” Legislative Conference.
Each state is eligible for up to two $500 scholarships to assist first-time young agent attendees. State association staff chooses the recipients and must notify national of their selection by submitting one application for each recipient on or before March 13, 2015. Contact your state association to see if you are eligible for the award.
First-time young agent attendees may also apply for the Maurice Herndon Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship is presented to one individual in honor of Maurice Herndon, who spearheaded many of the grassroots initiatives that make the Big "I" who we are today. The deadline for the essay award is March 13, 2015. For questions on the scholarships or the national young agents program, contact Susie Bonner, IOM, CAE at firstname.lastname@example.org .
