COVID-19 Resources From PIA National
Ever since the start of the coronavirus crisis, PIA National has greatly increased its communication of information about COVID-19 of interest to PIA members, independent insurance agents. Here’s a look:
Our lead communications channel is the weekly e-newsletter PIA National Newsline. Because many developments are more fast-moving, we also rely on the PIA National website www.pianet.com and the regulatory-focused PIA Advocacy Blog www.piaadvocacy.com. Both are updated daily, depending on what’s happening.
PIA National has started a coronavirus webpage at www.pianet.com/coronavirus. It is a resource center, updated daily with many links to insurance and more general coronavirus information. For in-depth legislative and regulatory updates, see the PIA Advocacy blog at https://piaadvocacy.com. In addition, we’re regularly sending coronavirus updates via email.
PIA’s messages are also distributed via various social media channels.
PIA has greatly increased its use of video to engage PIA with content of interest to PIA members and our carrier partners.
In the past week, Mike Becker, executive vice president & CEO of PIA National, sat down with four PIA member agents — virtually — to discuss the impact of the coronavirus.You'll hear insights from Becker’s conversation with Albert S. Pappalardo Jr. of Pappalardo Agency Inc. in Mandeville, La.; Keith A. Savino of Broadfield Group in Warwick, N.J.; Mark A. Suhr of Suhr & Lichty Insurance Agency in Seward, Neb.; and David “Red” Gorman of Red Gorman Insurance in Dallas.
