Young Agents


The Maine Young Agents Committee was founded in 1982 as a way for agents under the age of 40 to break into a seemingly veteran industry.  YAC members not only build strong and lasting friendships with their peers, but also have the chance to enjoy an array of benefits including:

  •  Statewide networking with other young professionals
  • Participation in charitable and social events
  • Stratetic planning, personal growth and leadership opportunities
  • Access to educational scholarships
  • Tools and resources to begin or continue a prosperous career  

By joining YAC, individuals become part of a close-knit group that encourages young agents to:

  • Stay informed of changes in the industry and undertand how to implement these changes in an overall independent system
  • Enhance the image of the independent system and MIAA
  • Participate in activities and become involved, to shape the future of the independent agency system and the association 

All MIAA members who are under 40 years of age and have been in the industry less than 5 years are welcome and encouraged to join the young agents group.  There is no fee to participate.  For upcoming YAC events, visit the events calendar or join our mailing list!  You do not need to be a member of YAC to participate in a YAC hosted event.  

For more information about the Young Agents Committee, please contact Shannon Gorman at 207-623-1875.
