Betty Gerdes Distinguished Service Award

Betty Gerdes was also a moving force behind the Insurance Auditors Association of the Central States and her local chapter, and she was a great friend to many in the association. Gerdes always tried to make NSIPA better, and she was a mentor to many who joined the board of the society. To recognize her efforts, the Distinguished Service Award was renamed the Betty Gerdes Distinguished Service Award as she turned over the reins to the new management company.

If you know someone that exemplifies the ethics and standards of NSIPA and has worked to further the premium auditor as a profession, you can nominate them for Betty Gerdes Distinguished Service Award that is presented at the annual seminar. When the nominations are received, the board reviews them, and the nominee that best symbolizes our ideals is selected to receive the award.
