This award is presented to a new SCLA designee for their demonstrated commitment to professionalism and outstanding service to the insurance industry.  It honors someone who has utilized their claims law training in successfully impacting their daily work activities; for instance, how what was learned through AEI has helped in their claims work, or how the designation has given them more confidence in dealing with attorneys and other parties.

Anyone who has or will have achieved their SCLA designation between January 1, 2020 and February 5, 2021 is eligible for this award (Note: SCLA designation must be successfully completed by February 5, 2021, but application can be made before SCLA is completed).  Applications may be submitted directly from the Designee, or the Designee’s colleague may provide a nomination.

The duration of the talk should be approximately 10 minutes and should address examples of the impact that the SCLA designation has made in their career (presentation software may be used).

The award recipient will also need to provide AEI a publicity photo (high-res digital or  professional photograph) for pre-and post-conference print and electronic communication pieces. The recipient must be comfortable with their image, name, job title and employer being publicized and possess strong communications and public speaking skills.
