Here’s what our members have to say
Becoming a member of the ACIA has been quite the experience! Seeing people like me, represent our community in the Insurance industry the way they do has made me proud to know that I belong to an association that is truly remarkable and is making a big difference in the industry.
I can only speak for myself when I say that ACIA helped me realise my true potential, I’m now convinced that I have what it takes to be successful. This is something potential school leavers, graduates and non-graduates who are interested in joining the insurance industry should keep in mind; you are just as valuable as anyone else in the industry, all it takes is determination.
I am also very fortunate to have such hardworking mentors who gave up some of their time to guide me every step of the way in getting my foot in the door. I can only hope that every other motivated individual, benefits from ACIA the same way I did.
