Robbie Thompson, executive director at PLUS, recently authored an article that was published on the Insurance Journal website this week. The piece, Build a Personal Brand, highlights the pending gap in insurance talent and how young professionals can work to build a brand that will make them stand out in the insurance field. From the article…
What a tremendous opportunity this flow of retirements could be for young professionals that do choose the insurance industry. For those bright, ambitious, forward-looking young professionals, the insurance world could be an amazing opportunity. Sheer numbers alone are on their side, and young professionals’ entrepreneurial spirit and preference for innovation could make them incredibly valuable as the industry changes.
In partnership with the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) and on behalf of the industry as a whole, PLUS Foundation announces a $50,000 donation for hurricane relief.
Residents in Texas and Florida, as well as service organizations in those areas, are reeling from the devastation caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma. PLUS Foundation, continuing a tradition of support in the aftermath of natural disasters, authorized grants to the United Way of Greater Houston Relief Fund and the United Way of Florida Hurricane Irma Relief Fund to aid in recovery efforts. These organizations and relief funds were selected because of the way in which they engage local leaders in identifying the greatest unmet needs and fund a broad range of services in the impacted areas. Additionally, as established charitable organizations they will remain as cornerstones of the community through the entire disaster recovery process.
If you have been meaning to give but have not yet done so, you can do so directly knowing that 100% of your donation will go to the most important needs.
PLUS Foundation is able to respond to events like hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as well as prior hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, because of all the support we receive from PLUS members and corporate donors. We are pleased to reflect the generosity of the professional liability insurance community.
