The Arkansas Insurance Hall of Fame was created to recognize leaders of the insurance industry in Arkansas. Our goals are to remind the public of the important role the insurance industry plays in securing the well-being of both individuals and businesses, to inspire the next generation of leadership to reach these high levels of accomplishment, and to encourage young Arkansans to consider careers in the insurance industry.
The Arkansas Insurance Hall of Fame seeks to identify and honor distinguished insurance industry professionals who exemplify innovation, social responsibility, leadership, and professional excellence; who have made broad encompassing and lasting contributions to advance the role of insurance in society; and who have significantly impacted the lives of many Arkansans.
The Hall is housed at the University of Central Arkansas, which has the only program offering a major in insurance and risk management in the state of Arkansas. Approved in 2000, this baccalaureate degree program serves as a valuable resource for the insurance and financial services industry througout the region.
Hall of Fame Induction Banquet
Proceeds from the Hall’s banquet benefit the Arkansas Insurance Hall of Fame fund established to provide financial support to students in UCA's insurance and risk management program.
Nominations for induction into the 2017 Hall open January 1, 2017 and may be submitted online. The deadline for submission for the 2017 Hall of Fame class is June 30, 2017. Nominations will be considered for three years.
