Jon Gentile, Vice President of Government Relations for the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA), has been named to the 2024 leadership team of the National Institute for Lobbying and Ethics (NILE).

“Jon has a vision for our future that will help us build on our goals of continuing education and ethics,” said Paul Miller, NILE Board Chair.


Gentile will oversee NILE’s new AI Task Force, which will help set a standard for using AI in the lobbying profession. Gentile will also oversee NILE University and its continued growth, as well as the efforts to implement a national lobbying ID card.


“NILE has been a guiding force for the lobbying profession since its inception and I’m excited to take on the challenge of leading the organization,” said Gentile. “During my term, I look forward to strengthening the excellent NILE initiatives already in place. This includes serving as a voice for all lobbyists by standing up for the profession; providing education through the Public Policy Certificate program and professional development panels; and continuing to promote NILE’s commitment to ethical lobbying. I’m honored to be joined in this effort by this distinguished Executive Committee and Board of seasoned professionals.”


“We are pleased to congratulate Jon on this honor,” said PIA CEO Mike Becker. “Jon's ongoing track record of success in advocating for PIA members on Capitol Hill  will now be augmented by his service to NILE, an organization promoting professionalism, competence, and high ethical standards in representing lobbying, public policy, and government affairs professionals.”
