Our Mission

The Georgia Young Agent Committee is made up of Young Agent members under 40 years of age and is the premier group for professional growth and lifelong relationships in our industry.  The future of the independent agency channel rests on the development of the next generation of agency leaders and their success within the industry.

This committee seeks to nurture that success and provide opportunities for:

  • Leadership
  • Sales training
  • Improving communication skills
  • Networking
  • Advocating for the industry
  • Mentoring

Membership is open to all IIAG members younger than age 40. Young Agent membership is free for all IIAG Members. To learn about upcoming events & YAC opportunities, please subscribe to the Young Agent Newsletter below.

Our Impact

Community Focused.

Young Agent Driven.

Chairman's Charity 2023

Our impact extends beyond career development. Each year our Young Agent Chairman selects a Georgia based charity to team up with. Fundraising and joint events occur throughout the year, with the proceeds of our YAC Will Weston IV Golf Tournament being donated. This year, chairman Jordan McDonald (Rhodes Risk Advisors) has selected Extra Special People. ESP exists to create transformative experiences for people with disabilities and their families, changing communities for the better!

InVest Program

Invest is a unique national program that educates high school and community college students on insurance, financial services and risk management topics, and encourages them to pursue a variety of careers in the insurance industry.

Throughout the year, Georgia Young Agents actively engage with the Invest program and assist in onboarding programs for Georgia schools. Our fundraising consists of both an Annual Wine Toss and Cornhole Tournament at the IIAG & YAC Annual Conference.
