9 December 2019
The National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) is inviting nominations for its 2020 Broker of the Year and Young Professional Broker of the Year awards until February 29.
The prestigious national awards recognise high-performing broker professionals. QBE and Vero will again be sponsors.
“I encourage you all to put forward names of brokers who are doing a tremendous job looking after the needs of their clients,” NIBA CEO Dallas Booth said.
There are five individual regional awards made after entries are assessed by the state/territory judging panel throughout May.
Broker of the year finalists, announced at regional events running from May to July, are then eligible for the Stephen Ball Memorial Award for Insurance Broker of the Year. Mr Ball was a JLT Australia Chairman and NIBA president who died in 2016.
The winner, to be revealed at the NIBA Convention in Melbourne in October, will receive a prize valued at $20,000.
Each nominee must be a member of NIBA and a Qualified Practising Insurance Broker, have spent a minimum of three of the last five years living in Australia and travel to Sydney for a two-day selection interview for the national judging process. Click here to nominate.
The Young Professional Broker of the Year Award/Warren Tickle Memorial Award goes to an insurance broker below the age of 35 who exhibits an outstanding level of professionalism and integrity.
The winner receives a tailored personal and business development experience to the value of $10,000. This award began in 1990 in honour of Warren Tickle, a former Insurance Commissioner and insurance lecturer responsible for the implementation of the Insurance (Agents & Brokers) Act 1984.

In both categories, industry members should nominate professionals who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to client advocacy, technical excellence, customer service and personal development.
