1752 Club of Nebraska

What is the 1752 Club?

The club is named after the year from the founding date of the oldest property carrier in North America, March 26, 1752. The Honorable Ben Franklin, along with a local group of volunteer fire fighters, formed "The Philadelphia Contributionship for the Insurance of Houses From Loss By Fire", the first mutual insurance company. Philadelphia Contributionship remains in business today.

The NE 1752 Club is for the Nebraska insurance company marketing professionals working with independent insurance agents, agencies, and their customers. The 1752 club provides venues for networking among companies, agents, and agents associations to generally raise the status of the entire insurance industry with positive public relations and selects the PIA NE IA agent of the year.
