KAIA Honors Industry Professionals

Farmers Alliance representatives recently attended and exhibited at the Kansas Association of Insurance Agents’ (KAIA) Annual Convention in Wichita, Kansas. The KAIA Convention attracts agency owners and executives from independent agencies all over Kansas to network with other insurance professionals and learn about the latest industry trends.

Our Kansas Marketing Reps, Carol Niemeyer and Kyle Young represented Farmers Alliance at the event where they hosted a booth in the exhibition hall at Century II convention center. Hundreds of Farmers Alliance agents stopped by the booth along with several prospective agents interested in learning more about what products and services we offer.

On the last day of the Convention, KAIA hosts an award ceremony to acknowledge outstanding independent insurance professionals from across the state. Members can nominate their colleagues for several different awards. This year, our very own, Carol Niemeyer was the recipient of the “Company Rep of the Year” award for her outstanding service to Farmers Alliance independent agencies and her contributions to enhancing the reputation of the industry.

Carol began her career with Farmers Alliance in 1998 as an Underwriter trainee and was quickly promoted to Underwriter. As an Underwriter, she worked with agents across many states and became proficient in many product lines.  Just prior to joining the Marketing Team, she was the lead underwriter for Eastern Kansas.  She transitioned to her role as a Marketing Rep for Eastern Kansas in 2018. She quickly began to show her drive and abilities and was promoted to Senior Marketing Rep in 2020.

Carol has great relationships with the agents in her region, and not only supports them with sales and marketing initiatives, but also through web training and ongoing support. The agents she works with appreciate her vast knowledge of the company and her skills in assisting them to grow their business.

“Farmers Alliance appreciates all that Carol does to help our FAMI agents be successful”, said Jack Rader, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Reinsurance. “She is extremely deserving of this great recognition, and we are honored to have her on our team.”
