Coming up in this edition of NICB News we head to Dallas to warn residents of a potential scam after a disaster, plus we check in at the latest cargo summit in Memphis and we’ve got the results of our latest motorcycle theft report.
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:
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.
