Unique InVEST Partnership Seeks to Ramp Up Insurance Talent Pipeline in Maryland
This fall InVEST joined forces with the Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA), the University of Baltimore, and several independent insurance agencies throughout the state to spread the word about the unlimited career possibilities for high school students in the insurance industry.

In fact, this insurance education and career awareness outreach initiative is so important to Maryland, the state has hired a part-time staff member, David Ring, former award-winning school superintendent from Delaware, to connect InVEST and University of Baltimore to high schools throughout the state. The goal for this outreach: bolster the number of students who study insurance and continue their career path into the insurance industry, whether in an agency or a company. InVEST has been promoting its free online curriculum, support for schools and teachers, and discussing the unlimited career opportunities with the Maryland Insurance Administration as it looks to increase the pool of highly educated and trained workers to bring more insurance business to the state. Additionally, the University of Baltimore has just started a new risk management program to recruit more high school students to their program.

Maryland Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer has dedicated his time and that of his staff to connecting partners with Maryland school officials and influencers, making this partnership particularly successful. A former insurance agent, Redmer is well connected to the agency community and is enlisting its support for this initiative. InVEST looks forward of the expansion of this program throughout Maryland and hopes to develop similar partnerships in many other states.
