Award in Innovation

At NAMIC, we understand that innovation isn’t just about the idea – it’s also about the creation and application of it. That’s why NAMIC created the Award in Innovation in 2014, to recognize mutual insurers that exemplify the vision and entrepreneurialism it takes to stay relevant in changing times.

Whether the ideas are big or small, each innovation is crucial to keeping our community strong and stable for the future. With almost 200 years of delivering on the promise to put policyholders first, it’s more critical than ever that we celebrate the spirit of innovation within the mutual industry.

Deadline for submissions: April 1, 2019

Who should apply?

  1. NAMIC’s Award in Innovation is open to NAMIC members.

  2. Other non-member companies or organizations may nominate and complete an application form on behalf of a regular NAMIC member.
