Deadline nears for 2019 US Insurance Awards nominations

The nomination deadline for Business Insurance’s 2019 U.S. Insurance Awards is fast approaching.

Launched last year, the U.S. Insurance Awards highlight exceptional work by insurance professionals working at companies across the commercial insurance industry, from retail brokers to third-party administrators, insurers reinsurers and others.

Awards are offered in 15 categories. New this year is an award for Diversity & Inclusion Initiative of the Year

A fundraising program associated with the awards was created to address the industry’s talent crisis by funding the Business Insurance Scholarship Endowment, which provides scholarships, grants, and programming at universities without risk management degree programs.

The U.S. Insurance Awards honor teams of professionals working on specific projects. Anyone familiar with a team’s work can nominate them for an award. Submissions are due Dec. 18. All nominations will be reviewed by a panel of Business Insurance editors who will select finalists in each category. The finalists will be reviewed by a panel of up to 100 professional risk managers, and the winners will be announced at a gala dinner in New York on March 21, 2019.
