Call for Nominations

Put your nominee front and centre in 2016

As a member of the insurance community, you are a potential nominator, and as such you play a major role in ensuring the Leadership Awards are relevant and responsive to our CIP Society membership and the p&c community in Canada. 

You know that there are shining examples of leadership on the front lines and in the back offices of our profession. You know the hallmarks of leadership and can recognize strength, character and collaborative spirit in your colleagues. 

That is why the CIP Society will depend on you to identify and nominate potential honourees for the 8th Annual National Leadership Awards – those established and emerging leaders who are most deserving of recognition. We urge you to consider the awards criteria and nominate a valued colleague for his or her contribution, collaboration and/or innovative impact on the industry.
