NICB Wins ACE Award for Best Small Communications Team

Congratulations to our Communications department as they were announced as a winner in the 2015 ACE Awards. The goal of the ACE Award is to honor the individuals, agencies and teams in PR and marketing who, day in and day out, are THE BEST. They begin and end each day at the top. The award was given to the group under the Small Communications Team category for their work in the following videos:

Hurricane Katrina: 10 Years Later Corvette Purchased with Phony Bank Check in Craigslist Scam 46 Years Later Omaha Man is Reunited with Stolen Motorcycle

The following quote is the write-up from the judges at Ragan's Communications.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau promotes its activities with compelling, entertaining and (most important) share-worthy videos. Only three people work on these videos: One staff member handles research, writing, and interview scheduling; another handles graphics; and a third is the on-screen face and voice of the organization. Together, this bare-bones team has produced videos you can't stop watching. These videos tell the story of how the Crime Bureau has helped insured individuals recovering from Hurricane Katrina avoid car sales scams on CraigsList, and much more. One video tells the tale of returning a stolen motorcycle to its owner years after its theft. Viewers are entertained while they learn about Crime Bureau innovations, such as the Vehicle Identification Number Check used to help identify owners of cars swept up in Katrina.
