Insurance Awards

The Order’s insurance program is an integral part of Father McGivney’s vision for the Knights of Columbus, and its continued success is due to the outstanding performances by our general agents and field agents.

These men make it their business to provide needed life insurance protection to our members and their families.

The men of our field force are devoted and concerned advisors professionally trained to be of service to brother Knights and their families. They are second-to-none in their willingness to help a fellow member learn how our top-rated products can protect him and his family.

Attending this convention as special guests of the Order’s Board of Directors in recognition of their outstanding performance and as representatives of all the fine work performed by their fellow agents are four representatives of that field force: our two leading general agents and two leading field agents for the calendar year 2011.

In 2011, 32 general agents and 306 field agents earned this award.

Agency Incentive Award

It is also customary to reward our top-producing general and field agents through an incentive award program at the end of each year. The 2011 award was a trip to Hawaii. Taking the trip were 37 general agents and 162 field agents, along with their wives.
