Outstanding CSR of the Year Award
This award recognizes the achievements of an Outstanding Customer Service Representative. This award recipient completes with his/her counterparts from other state associations for the National Outstanding CSR of the Year presented by the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research. All nominations are due to PIA of Indiana by May 1, 2014.
The Outstanding CSR of the Year Award is one of the greatest professional honors a customer service representative can receive. It confers recognition of the highest order - an acknowledgement of the recipient's dedication and ability, commitment, and outstanding achievement. The award is open to everyone, regardless of affiliation or designation.
The only requirement? That the candidate be an insurance CSR or have primary duties in the customer service arena. As a CSR, you can even nominate yourself. Nominating someone is easy, all you have to do is fill out this Nomination Form. And, if you nominate the national winner, you receive a $1,000 prize! All we need is a name, address, and phone number. Once nominated, a candidate fills out a form, submits a letter of recommendation from a business reference, and writes a two-page essay on a topic to be determined by The National Alliance. (Please refer to the Entry Form for the current topic.)
