Register for October Meeting

Register for I-Day (November 2, Airport Holiday Inn)

Happy Fall everyone! I hope you are enjoying this wonderful weather.  This would typically be the newsletter where we provide updates from the annual meeting. But, as many of you know, the annual meeting in Orlando, FL had to be cancelled due to Hurricane Irma. Being the main event for the CPCU Society, this decision was not made lightly and the 2017 New Designees will be recognized next year in San Diego. Due to this cancellation, I am very excited to announce the Iowa Chapter has been selected to host the swearing in of the new National Officers! This will take place at our I-Day and will be a great way to meet Society Leadership.

Hurricanes, along with many other natural disasters, have impacted vast areas of the United States and the Iowa CPCU Society Chapter would like to help with a donation, and call upon our members to help as well. With funds that would have been used at the annual meeting, the Chapter will match all donations from members, up to $2,000 for a combined donation of $4000 total. Also, The Society is doing a matching campaign up to $25,000 so your $1 will count for $4!!! If we collect the entire $2,000 this will end up being an $8,000 donation! Funds will be accepted at the October 19th chapter meeting. If you would like to send a check, please make the check out to American Red Cross and send to the following address by October 25th:

Register for the September Meeting at Jasper Winery

I hope you all had a wonderful summer! It is that time of year where we once again start congratulating our New Designees.  This year we had 31 New Designees and had our first celebration of their accomplishment at Wellman’s on August 24th. It was a great event. Thank you to all who made it possible.

The annual meeting, in Orlando, FL, is September 15th - 19th, with the Confirmation and Opening ceremony occurring on Saturday, September 16th. This year the reception following the opening meeting will be held at Epcot and should be a great event for all of the New Designees in attendance.

We cap off the New Designee events with our local conferment during I-Day on November 2nd at the Holiday Inn – DSM Airport. Not only will we have some amazing speakers at I-Day, but this year we will also celebrate the 65th anniversary of our local chapter, along with the 30th anniversary of the Grinnell sub-chapter and 10th anniversary of the North Central sub-chapter.
