Register for December Meeting

The holiday season will make the month of December speed by and my term as President complete. You may not know that I-Day is not just a one day event for a few of us. Ted Lussem, Kevin Seward and I had the opportunity to visit several companies on November 9th with Mike Koscielny, President Elect of the CPCU Society. We stopped at The IMT Group, EMC Insurance Companies, Grinnell Mutual, Nationwide, GuideOne and NCMIC and had to the chance to speak to new designees, members of the Iowa Chapter, future designees working towards their CPCU and executives of these companies to encourage participation in the Society and completion of the CPCU designation.

On November 10th we celebrated almost 50 of our new designees. You and our new designees are among 2% of the industry professionals with a CPCU. Congratulations to all. We hosted two speakers who talked to us about Personal Lines. Ray Thompson indicated that small companies can compete in this competitive market through local expertise, value added services and intelligent underwriting. Kim Hazelbaker encouraged us to review the top safety pick on the IIHS website to learn how safe your car is compared to others. [click to continue…]

November starts the busiest time of the year for all of us. The week of I-Day will be quite the week as we elect our next President. Additionally, I will visit companies across Iowa the day before I-Day to congratulate the new designees on November 9th.

Veterans Day and Thanksgiving also make this month special. Thank you to our Veterans who have served and sacrificed for our freedom. Did you know that in 2019 this tradition of honoring our Veterans will be 100 years old?

We will continue our celebration for new designees at the I-Day conferment, on November 10, 2016 at Prairie Meadows starting at 8:00 AM. We still have space available for our meeting so sign up soon. Our topic will be Personal Lines and why it is important to you, the industry and what the future holds. We will also present the Burkhalter Award and the Circle of Excellence Award at this event.  [click to continue…]
