Insurance Hall of Fame

Jump to: navigation, search

The ' Insurance Hall of Fame' honors leaders, innovators and visionaries in the insurance field and is presented annually by the International Insurance Society. It was created at the Griffith Foundation in 1957 and today has more than 100 laureates.[1] The museum at the University of Alabama houses a collection of memorabilia illustrating the life and careers of Laureates, and displays an extensive selection of original portraits of Hall of Fame Laureates. A multimedia collection of laureate portraits, videos and biographies are also featured in the Claire and Joseph Smetana Gallery located at St. John's University in New York.

To qualify for inclusion in the Insurance Hall of Fame, nominees must be adjudged to have made a broad, encompassing and lasting contribution to the insurance industry, thereby affecting a substantial influence on the ability of the industry to serve society. Further, they may have shown creative thinking and imaginative actions - starting key trends, discovering new products or methods, or uncovering and resolving problems.

Each year, a slate of candidates, deemed to fulfill the Hall of Fame Awards criteria, is selected by the Honors Committee of the International Insurance Society. This slate is then voted on by IIS membership through a secret ballot certified by an independent public accounting firm. To recognize those leaders who are deemed worthy for induction into the Insurance Hall of Fame but are deceased, the International Insurance Society may also choose to elect an individual to receive the award posthumously.[2]
