Jordan Durga of the Durga Insurance Group in Norton Shores, Michigan, received the Farm Bureau Insurance Directors’ Award at the company’s annual Multi-Line Marketing Convention held in Grand Rapids this February. The award recognizes a Farm Bureau Insurance agent within their first five years with the company who exemplifies a commitment to professional development, community involvement and a fostering a successful office environment.

While announcing Durga as this year’s winner, Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan Statewide Sales Director Lucas Wey outlined the qualities the organization looks for in a Directors’ Award nominee. “The winning agent is someone who displays leadership, commits to a sound business plan, actively engages in the community, creates opportunities for others and successfully manages their operation.”

Wey noted the achievements of the Durga Insurance Group as well as the important role the Durga family plays in their community during the ceremony. “Through their support of youth football, cheerleading and 4H, as well as working with Canines for Change to donate a therapy dog and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, Jordan and his family have strived to make a positive impact.” Wey also made note of the role Jordan, his wife Sara and their family played in the construction of Bella’s Place, an outdoor interactive learning and play center at New Era Christian School named after the Durga’s daughter, Bella, whom the family tragically lost at the age of 5 in February of 2022.

Upon receiving the award, Durga reflected on his journey as a Farm Bureau Insurance agent and shared some words of encouragement for his fellow agents. “My advice would be to enjoy your successes, but moreso I hope you enjoy the experience along the way.” He continued, “Find the people to create memories with and always recognize that you’re that person for somebody else.”
