Young Agents

the next generation of industry leaders

​​​​​​​​YoungAgents.gifWhat is a Young Agent?

A Young Agent is an insurance professional who is under the age of 41 that works with a Big “I” member agency. All company reps, regardless of age, are encouraged to interact with the future leadership of the Big “I” and the insurance world.

IIAV Young Agents host numerous events throughout the year so insurance professionals can build relationships with others in their industry.These events include networking socials, educational seminars tailored to those newer to the industry and community service activities.
Politics also matter to Young Agents. They are active on both the state (VAPAC) and national level (InsurPAC). Influence the Vote.
One of the BEST parts about of being active in the Young Agents’ Program is being able to meet and get to know people just like you! We are all in it together! So come out and get involved with this great group of individuals.
