WASHINGTON – The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has named Connie Boyd of the Donegal Insurance Group as its 2019 Company Representative of the Year. The presentation was made on September 20, 2019 during a gala ceremony held in conjunction with PIA’s Board of Directors meeting in Orlando.

“Connie works with independent agents and agencies, helping them with promotion, marketing and products to build and maintain profitable books of business, said PIA National President-elect Dennis Kuhnke in presenting the award. “Connie has been active in the insurance industry and in her community; and the fact that Connie was an agent for a number of years helps her better relate to and understand both agents and CSRs.”

The criteria used to select the PIA National Company Representative of the Year includes professional experience, assistance given to agents, technical knowledge and demonstrated awareness of industry problems and market conditions. Their contributions to the industry through participation in PIA and other insurance organizations are also considered, as are their contributions to serving the public and their community.

Connie Boyd has earned the ACSR, AIAM and CPIW designations. She has also taught CE classes for PIA of Virginia & DC. “Connie has been our marketing representative for many years with the Donegal Insurance Group,” wrote John G. Lee, principal of Lee-Curtis Insurance Service and a past PIA National president. “Her positive attitude is always a delight when she is in the office and her calm professional demeanor is one that employees enjoy working with.”

“When I joined the PIA 15 years ago, I had no idea how rewarding it would be,” said Boyd, accepting the award. “It is a family, there is a close relationship. I am also blessed because I am doing something that I love. This truly is an honor, thank you very much.”
