Our own Steve Zogby was elected by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of New York, Inc. (IIABNY) to the national board of directors of IIABA on September 7, 2016. He will fill the unexpired term of John R. Costello as National Director of New York’s oldest state insurance producer trade association. Steve will represent IIABNY as National Director until May 2017 when he will be eligible for election by the full membership to a full, three year term.
Steve is a former IIABNY Chair of the Board, leading the organization in 2007-2008. Since 2010 he has chaired the IIABNY’s political action committee and was honored in 2014 as recipient of the association’s Vincent Alba Award for his contributions to its political effectiveness. In 2015, he received the 1882 Fellow Award, IIABNY’s highest honor, for his contributions to the association, the insurance industry, and his community.
He is currently serving as a board member of the Oneida County Industrial Development Agency, Mohawk Valley Community College Foundation, and the Stanley Center for the Arts. Steve is also a member of the advisory board of directors of the Adirondack Insurance Exchange.
The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, Inc., also known as the “Big I,” is a national alliance of business owners and their employees who offer all types of insurance and financial services products. These more than a quarter million independent agents and brokers, like Scalzo, Zogby & Wittig, Inc., represent more than one insurance company. This means they can offer you a much wider choice of auto, home, business, and life insurance coverages. And they represent their clients when it comes to risk management and standing with them during the claims process.
The Big I monitors and effects consumer, insurance agent and broker, and small business issues in Washington, DC through active and professional staff on Capitol Hill. Steve is proud to serve New York agents in his new capacity on the national board of directors. We’ve known Steve as a willing community member serving tirelessly in the non-profit community here in the Mohawk Valley. We are extremely proud that now he’ll have a voice nationally on insurance issues that affect us all.
Until next time,
