OIA's Internship Program will take a hiatus in 2014 as we research the best avenues for perpetuating the independent agency system.
The numbers speak for themselves...
- 65 students have completed the program.
- 23 former interns are working in the industry.
- 32 agencies and 16 companies have participated as program hosts.
Committee members have recruited and selected interns from 14 colleges and universities around the state.
Foundation for the Advancement of Insurance Professionals
In 2009, OIA registered the Foundation for the Advancement of Insurance Professionals, which firmly solidifies OIA's commitment to the Internship Program.
The foundation will allow for continued support of internships, programs and grants that will enhance Ohio's insurance industry, as OIA's Internship Program continues to promote the independent agency system as a desirable career choice for college students.
