Nothing in this world happens without insurance. Whether you’re attending a concert or a football game, rebuilding after a catastrophe, making your start-up dream a reality, or traveling by car, plane or space shuttle, insurance offers protection, security and peace of mind. It’s a fascinating business, and one that doesn’t get enough credit for the critical role it plays in everyday life.
Representing 45 of the top 50 and 75 of the top 100 commercial brokerage firms on Business Insurance’s Top 100 list, The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers is the premier association for the top regional, national and international commercial insurance and employee benefits brokers worldwide. The Council is a trade association like no other, screaming innovation and leadership, with a unique perspective on how the most powerful firms in the world operate. And when it comes to perpetuation planning and producer recruitment and development, The Council knows the importance of promoting careers in risk management and insurance, specifically in commercial insurance brokerage.
Sound boring? Maybe. But with one million industry professionals expected to retire over the next decade, there will be vast opportunities for young professionals to break into the business. And trust us – it’s anything but boring. Remember that last obstacle course race you ran? Or that ridiculously scary roller coaster? Or that playoff game you attended with 85,000 other screaming fans? That’s the space commercial insurance brokers live in – and they’ll be the first to tell you there’s never a dull day at the office.
Based in Washington, D.C., The Council celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2013. Click here for a taste of our organization and why you should get involved.
