  • Log into your profile. Hover over the My Profile tab. Click Invoices. You should see all your paid and unpaid invoices here. Click on the most recent invoice number to look at the invoice.

  • Professional in their conduct 
  • Committed to the mutual insurance industry 
  • Involved by helping others and volunteering
  • Many years of service in the mutual insurance industry 
  • Successful financial results 
  • Respected by their peers

We cannot guarantee that any nominations received after that date will receive consideration.

Please note that the Board does consider whether a nominee has been honored in the past.

Please review the past honorees when considering your nomination.
