Tim Fritz

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 membership year.

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.
