Fritz Agency of Bad Axe honored for strong bond with county Farm Bureau
Farm Bureau Insurance’s (FBI) Agent Cultivator Award this year goes to Tim Fritz of Bad Axe, for his
exceptional work building strong relations between his namesake agency and the
Huron County Farm Bureau—and its members. The Tim
Fritz Insurance Agency owner was awarded the honor at a meeting of
Bay-Thumb-region agents in Frankenmuth earlier this winter.
The Cultivator award recognizes Farm Bureau Insurance agents who
do an exceptional job building relationships with their respective county Farm
Bureau. The honor is seen as a starting point for giving agents more direct experience
with their respective county Farm Bureaus, MFB and Core Programs.
With this award, Michigan Farm Bureau regional representatives
and FBI managing partners hope to increase the value of membership, share effective
strategies with other agents and communicate why such relationships are
important for optimal relationships between agents and county Farm Bureaus.
Nominations are made by county Farm Bureau boards, based on the previous
membership year (Sept. 1 through Aug. 31) and are accepted by MFB regional representatives
in October and November. Once collected, regional representatives and FBI managing
partners collaborate to choose recipients, with winners announced at FBI kickoff meetings in January.
In addition to coveted bragging rights, Cultivator Award winners
receive $500 in FBI marketing dollars or platinum-sponsor status at their
respective Dinner on the Farm event.
To be eligible for the award, Fritz had to have received Key
Club honors for writing five or more regular members in the preceding
Nominees are weighed on their constructive contributions to
their county Farm Bureaus; promotion of membership and benefits; and
encouraging member involvement.
For more information, contact your MFB regional representative
or FBI managing partner.
