National Alliance Establishes Disaster Relief Scholarship Fund

September 8, 2005

The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research has established and fully funded a Disaster Relief Scholarship Fund in order to assist those in the insurance community and their families, whose lives have been tragically altered by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.

Scholarships to National Alliance education programs held anywhere in the United States will be given to qualified independent agents, brokers, and their employees from the impacted areas.

“Our colleagues in the industry have expressed the desire to try to get back to doing business as usual as soon as possible,” said William T. Hold, president of The National Alliance. “Disasters that affect the insurance industry as severely as Hurricane Katrina require immediate information and education on the best insurance and risk management solutions and procedures to follow.”

The National Alliance conducts Certified Insurance Counselors (CIC), Certified Insurance Service Representatives (CISR), and Certified Risk Managers (CRM) designation programs, plus James K. Ruble Seminars, Dynamics Sales Training, and the School for Producer Development.

Scholarship applications can be accessed online at
