The 2019 PIA National Excellence in Social Media Award was sponsored by the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).

“One of the first groups to fully embrace social media, a few years ago, was independent insurance agents,” said Lauren G. Pachman, Esq., PIA National counsel, director of regulatory affairs and a Board member of NIPR. “In fact, PIA National was one of the first groups anywhere to bestow an award for excellence in social media, beginning in 2010.”

“Since that time, we’ve seen an increase in the sophistication—and the positive results—of the use of social media marketing by independent insurance agencies, “Pachman said. “Today, we honor a PIA agency that has taken agency social media marketing to the next level. The winner of the 2019 PIA National Excellence in Social Media Award, Tompkins Insurance Agencies.”
