LIMRA started the Rising Stars contest in 2016 as part of its 100th Anniversary celebration. The contest acknowledges the importance of the next generation of leaders who are not only embracing all the changes taking place in the financial services industry but are also reacting to these changes in innovative ways. LIMRA is looking for creative, dedicated individuals who are helping to propel the industry forward.
