Award Nomination Form
Those who give always get back. With nearly 11,000 OIA independent agents across Ohio, the number of lives we can - and do - touch is astounding. Independent agents are hard at work every day not only offering their clients expert advice, guidance and peace of mind, but also reaching out beyond their office doors to lead or assist in programs that help neighbors in need. This innate desire to do the right thing for people characterizes many independent agents, making their purpose as agents more meaningful and their dedication to clients more focused.
Recognizing independent agents who are creating a positive impact in the industry or their community not only provides them with well-deserved acknowledgment, it also helps build awareness of independent agents across Ohio and demonstrates how the value they provide reaches far beyond a business transaction.
Award winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony in December.
