Education Committee

The AAMGA’s Education Committee works with the AAMGA University Chancellor and Headquarters’ University staff to ensure quality, relevant courses are made available to members.

The committee meets regularly to discuss upcoming University events including Weekend programs, Stand-Alone programs and Agency and Company-sponsored courses. The committee provides input on class topic selection, content, instructors and locations with the goal of providing members with the ideal technical and developmental solutions to meet their educational needs. A wide variety of wholesale and surplus lines audiences are represented by the committee thanks to the differing backgrounds that each of the members bring.

The committee provides input on strategic University initiatives such as long-range course planning and University marketing initiatives. The commitment of committee members has led to the honor of AAMGA University being one of the most important benefits of being an AAMGA member.
