This is our updated 2016 version of this post, just in time for the Insurance Party of the Decade, Christmas for Insurance Nerds, the 2016 CPCU Annual Meeting in Hawaii.
#InsuranceRocks – Because Insurance is an Awesome Industry!
Those of us who work in the industry know that insurance is an awesome industry. Unfortunately, it’s also a complex industry, and we are misunderstood by the public, especially the younger generations. This has caused many people to have a negative impression of the industry. Today, is the day we change that stereotype!
Join us in starting a movement where we show the world how proud we are of the work we do and how much we love it! We want to encourage every insurance professional who has had a fulfilling career and who loves the industry to make their love public by sharing just how and why #InsuranceRocks.
Help us reverse the tide, and change the rhetoric about our industry. Help us get to the point where a high school or college kid Googles information about working in the industry and finds multitudes of positive and encouraging information. This will help us all to attract the best talent!
You can help in 3 ways with varying degrees of commitment:
- The quick way: Simply start tweeting the reasons you love insurance using the hashtag #InsuranceRocks.
- The even better way: share this article with all your insurance friends, and encourage them to participate.
- The best way: If you’re willing to put a little more time into it, help us by sending us your story for the “Why I Love Insurance Series”. We will publish your article here on InsNerds. Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can read a few stories already by clicking here.
It’s no accident that we’re launching this movement to coincide with the start of the 2016 CPCU Society Annual Meeting in Hawaii #CPCU2016. Carly and Tony will be at the event equipped with awesome #InsuranceRocks ribbons for your lanyard, find one of us, and show us your #InsuranceRocks Tweet, and we’ll give you the most exclusive ribbon at the conference!
