NAIFA Past President David Smithkey, RFC, CLU, will be inducted into the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame next month. The induction ceremony will take place on August 21 at the Country Club of Lansing in Lansing, Michigan.
In 1988, the Olivet College Insurance Program Advisory Committee, consisting of leaders from the insurance and risk-management business community, called for the establishment of the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame.
Over the years, a number of insurance professionals have helped in raising funds and developing the concept and guidelines for the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame, an independent 501©(3) corporation.
Since 1994, the Hall of Fame has continued to increase awareness of the positive contributions of the insurance business and has become one of the most prestigious events in the Michigan insurance and risk-management community.
The portraits and biographies of the members of the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame are on permanent display in the Insurance Conference Room of the Olivet College Burrage Library, and on the website, http://insurance.ollivetcollege.edu.
