Jury Threshold a Reason for High Auto
Insurance in Louisiana?

Let's spread the word. As we prepare for the next Legislative Session, could it be our year to see tort reform? Many don't believe we can do that with our current leadership. However, why not start getting the message out? It certainly can't hurt. Here are a few news stories already out there. Why not share these with your consumers?



Looking for Good Help?

PIA, along with other industry colleagues, are partnering with ULM Department of Risk Management and Insurance for the 2017 Risk & Insurance Talent Search. Mark your calendar for November 14 - 15, 2017 and plan to join us in Monroe — if you are looking for talented staff to bring in to your agency you won't want to miss this opportunity, including a welcome reception, career fair with exhibit booths, round table discussions, lunch and interviews. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Meet us in Monroe to find your new insurance hire at RITS!

Are You Aware of the New Agents' License
Renewal Process?

Act 154 of the 2017 Regular Legislative Session provides for revisions to the producer license renewal schedule. As a result of the passage of the legislation, licenses will be due for renewal based on each producer's license number, not by line of authority. The change will take effect January 1, 2018 and the Louisiana Department of Insurance will issue a bulletin outlining the changes. To view a PowerPoint presentation with more information and examples of how this will affect you, please click here.
