Why attend convention in their words
Last year PIA convention was a wonderful experience. I am a new independent agent transitioning from a captive agency. The conference allowed me to be introduced to insurance carriers I had no affiliation. Some of the carrier connections I made during the PIA conference allowed me to have a very productive year. I also learned a good deal of information on safety along with ideas for continuing to grow my agency.
Anthony Lancaster Agency Owner, Lancaster Insurance
PIA convention should be a MUST for every independent agent. The educational offering are top notch and the ability to network with fellow agents & company personnel is simply invaluable.

I went to my first PIA convention last summer in Memphis. I must say that it exceeded my exceptions. The speaker was great. Lots of new ideas that I was able to take back to my agency and implement as soon as I came back. The atmosphere was great. A lot of positive conversations with other agency owners that were willing to share what was working in their agencies. Can’t wait till PIA 2019.
Greg Scealf Agency Owner, Knoxville Insurance Group
The PIA convention is special because it feels less like a professional gathering and more like a family reunion! It is an opportunity to come together once a year and show support for one another in the work we are doing each day. I always enjoy the community, as well as the knowledge that I’m able to take away from convention week. Paige Scott Territory Sales Manager-TN, AAA

When Chaplain William Earnshaw, the first Superintendent of Stones River National Cemetery, wrote these words, he and the 111th United States Colored Infantry were nearing the end of nearly a year of locating and reburying Union soldiers from the battlefield, Murfreesboro, and the surrounding area. They began the work in October 1865.
Today, more than 6,100 Union soldiers are buried in Stones River National Cemetery. Of these, 2,562 are unknown. Nearly 1,000 veterans, and some family members, who served in the century since the Civil War are also interred there.
Chartered in 1986 as Children’s Museum Corporation of Rutherford County, the Discovery Center provides hands-on education opportunities for the community. An extensive grassroots campaign orchestrated by young parents led to purchasing a building and creating exhibits and programs. During its first year of operation, over 11,000 visitors came to experience the museum’s exhibits and programs. Now, 30 years after its inception, the Discovery Center serves as a vibrant community and tourism center with over 120,000 children and families exploring the exhibits each year.
Historic Cannonsburgh Village is located on 6 acres in Murfreesboro, and represents approximately 100 years of rural Tennessee life from the 1830s to the 1930s. The village features a gristmill, schoolhouse, telephone operator’s house, the University House, the Leeman House, a museum, a caboose, the wedding chapel, a doctor’s office, general store, working blacksmith’s shop, a well, and other points of interest, including the World’s Largest Cedar Bucket!
The Walter Hill Hydroelectric Station is a beautiful place to visit. You can feel the powerfully charged falls when you get close to them. At the bottom it is very loud, but it gets quiet as you make your way to the top
