BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

The 40 Under 40 program recognizes leadership attributes, client service skills and expertise among retail insurance brokers under age 40. The program is divided into four regions of the United States with 10 honorees per region.

While brokerages can nominate multiple candidates for each region, only one nominee per firm can be recognized for each region. Honorees are selected by a panel of Business Insurance editors.

Their excellence is being celebrated at four regional receptions hosted by Business Insurance in October. A reception will be held Oct. 14 in Atlanta, Oct. 16 in New York, Oct. 21 in Los Angeles and Oct. 23 in Chicago.

Profiles of all the honorees will be published in the Oct. 13 issue of Business Insurance.
