Let me tell you about the award.

The competition started in 1991 to honor customer service reps and account managers who have made significant contributions to the insurance and risk management industry.

The competition is sponsored by the Society of Certified Insurance Service Representatives (better known as CISR) and the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors (CIC) – proud member organizations of The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research.
