The Council Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable educational organization instituted by the Washington, D.C.-based Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers. Part of the Foundation’s core mission is to secure the future of the commercial insurance brokerage business by attracting and developing tomorrow’s talent, like Klus, Moorman, Peyton, Steinhilber and Zielinski.
“Commercial insurance brokerage is a career choice that is flush with job opportunities for young college graduates,” said Ken A. Crerar, president/CEO of The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers. “It is estimated that the broader insurance industry will need to fill 400,000 positions by 2020 due to impeding retirements. When student interns knock on our door, it is important to promote our industry as one that is looking for versatile skillsets and creativity, while providing good-paying jobs that support the community and opportunities for excellent work-life balance.”
The five interns from M3 are among 75 college students across the country who received Council Foundation scholarships this year.
