New! MAIA Young Agent Council Designation Scholarship

MAIA Young Agent Council Designation Scholarship

Are you looking for ways to fund a professional designation? Are you a young agent under 40 or new to the independent agent business? If so, MAIA’s Young Agents Council (YAC) may have a scholarship for you!

YAC is offering a new scholarship in 2013 worth up to $500 that can be used to offset the costs associated with earning a professional designation through MAIA (course fees, materials and overnight accommodations).

Achieving designations is a great way to continue your education and to show your agency principal (and clients) you are serious about your profession. MAIA’s career building designation programs may be just the boost you’re looking for, and each one has been approved for Michigan Continuing Education credit.

The Certified Insurance Service Representatives (CISR) program coaches front-line service professionals to understand and analyze risks and exposures with top-notch faculty, nine stimulating modules, and a curriculum that’s tailored to specific regions. Pick five of the nine modules to earn your CISR designation

The Certified Insurance Counselors Program (CIC) has been the insurance industry’s premier proven source for practical, real-world education since 1969, enhancing professional skills and offering an opportunity for national recognition within the insurance community.

The Certified Risk Managers Program (CRM) provides the foremost education available in the field of risk management, addressing today’s highest priorities like strategic planning and identifying, analyzing, controlling, financing, and administering operational risk, and more.

To apply for the scholarship all you need to do is fill out the application and write a 100 word essay along with supplying the required documents.

The application due date is March 29, 2013. The scholarship will be awarded at YAC’s Spring Conference, Rodeo Days, June 20, 2013, at Double JJ Resort in Rothbury, Michigan.
