    TSLA is once again awarding CIC and CISR scholarships in memory of Avrohm Wisenberg this year. These scholarships are generously donated to us by the Society of CIC. Please nominate a deserving individual in your office for one of the CIC or CISR scholarships that the TSLA awards each year.

    The nomination application is linked below on this page. Please circulate this web page around your departments, so that your supervisors can determine who they want to nominate. Individuals may also nominate themselves.

    This is a great way to reward an employee for a job well done!

    This application deadline to apply is September 08, 2017.

    The Executive Committee will be selecting the recipients. Each recipient will receive a complimentary invitation to the 2017 Annual Meeting being held in Austin in November. In addition, each recipient receives a $100 cash award upon completion & passing of his or her course.

    The Education Committee will mentor the winners so that they will be encouraged to take the classes and continue on with their designations. This is a great opportunity given to us by the Society, and we need our winners to take the classes.

    If you have any questions with regard to the application, please call Jean at (512)343-9058 or email her at jptsla@tsla.org.

    Thank you.

    Texas Surplus Lines Association
    The mission of the Texas Surplus Lines Association (TSLA), Inc. is to promote the general business and well-being of its membership, to protect the public and its trust in the business of insurance through the promotion of financially sound, ethical, authorized and eligible markets within the State of Texas and to encourage compliance with the general provisions of the Texas Insurance Code, as they relate to excess and surplus lines insurance.

    Society of Certified Insurance Counselors
    It is the mission of the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors, (CIC) to provide insurance and risk management professionals with an excellent, comprehensive and integrated continuing education system of practical value. To further that mission, the Society has made a commitment to excellence through responsibility, to superior curricula and outstanding faculty, to the highest standards of integrity, to the promotion of personal and profes-sional developments, and to affordable and readily available education programs. To become a CIC, individuals must attend five two-and-one half day institutes covering all aspects of the insurance indus-try and pass five rigorous examinations.

    Society of Certified Insurance Service Representatives
    The Society of Certified Insurance Service Represen-tatives (CISR) is a sister organization of the Society of CIC. It shares the same educational goals, but is tailored to the specific needs of customer service representatives.

    Like CIC and TSLA, the Society of CISR is continu-ally concerned with raising the standard of service in the insurance industry. To become a CISR, individu-als must attend five one-day courses covering all aspects of the insurance industry and pass five examinations.

    Avrohm Wisenberg
    Avrohm Wisenberg believed in education. More than that, he lived his commitment to professional excellence and then worked tirelessly to share it with his colleagues. From his support of basic research to his conviction that every individual in the insurance business must find a path for continual growth, Avrohm was a model for his peers. We are pleased to have established two annual scholarships in the name of Avrohm Wisenberg - student, teacher, mentor, and friend.
