This year PAMIC formed the Student Involvement Committee to address the challenges that member companies are facing when attracting young talent. The focus of the committee is to become involved in on-campus student events and to assist in the formation of insurance minors at Pennsylvania state schools.
The Committee recently had its first success, as the Bloomsburg University has decided to move forward with the development of an insurance minor. This minor will be an extension of the Zeigler Business School and aims to offer four courses for students to gain a better understanding and knowledge of how the insurance business operates and careers within the field. Additionally, the committee plans to continue to focus on Bloomsburg University by being involved in the upcoming Zeigler Institute for Professional Development (ZIPD). The ZIPD conference brings students together to learn about the various career opportunities that are available post-graduation. PAMIC plans to be involved in a speaking and outreach capacity.
If your company is interested in becoming a member of the Student Involvement Committee or participating in the ZIPD conference, contact Vaughn Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org.
