CSAA awards State Farm’s Joe Miskulin
VIENNA, Va.–CSAA awarded Joe Miskulin, manager at State Farm Central Monitoring Services, the CSAA President’s Award for his service to the monitoring industry.
“This is completely unexpected and humbling for someone like me, who came into this profession with a ton of questions and no experience to speak of,” Miskulin said in CSAA’s announcement. “I don't have the words to thank all of the mentors that have helped me along the way.”
Miskulin has been with State Farm Insurance for 35 years, the last 20 as the manager of the State Farm proprietary central station. He is one of the founding members of the CSAA Proprietary Council, which started in 1999 with a change in the association’s bylaws permitting not-for-profit central stations to become regular members. He has served on the CSAA Board of Directors since 2008 and been the co-chair of the CSAA Education Committee since 2009.
Miskulin, who was not in attendance at the CSAA Annual Meeting, was presented with his award at the CSAA Fall Operations Management Seminar in Elizabeth, N.J., in November.
“We congratulate Joe on receiving this well-deserved recognition in front of his peers and the membership that he has worked tirelessly to support for many years,” CSAA President Pam Petrow said in a prepared statement.
“As chair of the Proprietary Council and co-chair of the CSAA Education Committee, he has accepted leadership roles that have been very important to the growth and sustainability of the membership. He has led the Proprietary members, driving participation as well as content for meetings. On the education front, he has listened to the participants and worked to find topics and speakers, particularly for our annual Fall Ops event, that are relevant and engaging,” Petrow continued.
