The National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies has set up a program to recognize leaders in life insurance education.

NAILBA, Fairfax, Va., says the new NAILBA Education Excellence Award will honor an individual or entity whose contributions and service to education and learning programs have increased the overall caliber of professionalism in the life insurance industry.

Nominees will be judged based on active involvement in design and implementation of educational programs; support for educational development throughout the industry; and contributions to NAILBA education programs, NAILBA says.

Nominations are due Aug. 31.
