December 2012 President's Message

If you weren’t able to join us for I-Day you missed an informational treat. I know I learned a lot regarding weather modeling and how it can predict losses in the future. Peter Miller, President of The Institutes, got us up to date on the merger of The Institutes with the CPCU Society and the effect it has on CPCUs. Look for extra information with your 2013 dues invoice about the new benefits available to you.

I want to personally welcome our new designees to our chapter and congratulate them on their accomplishments. We want to thank Peter Miller and David Medvidofsky for conducting the conferment.


Erin Osier presented the Burkhalter Award to Dean Brooks, CPCU, CLU. Dean is an icon in the insurance industry, and was inducted into the Iowa Insurance Hall of Fame in 2007. He has served as an independent agency owner, insurance company executive, educator, expert witness, author, insurance technician, and industry leader in forms development.
I also had the privilege to present the CPCU Excellence Award to Nancy Green in recognition of all that she has done for the insurance industry and promoting CPCU. Nancy has been active in our chapter since she received her designation in 1991. She served as President of our chapter in 2004-2005. Nancy is well deserving of this award.

I would like to thank Erin Osier and her planning committee for delivering a very successful I-Day. Pictures from I-Day are included on page 3 of this ChapterGram, with a link to even more photos as well.

Join us at the Wakonda Club at 3:00 p.m. for our December 13th meeting. We will be collecting donations for the Food Pantry at this meeting. Cash is welcomed as well as non-perishables. Our speaker will be Steven Weisbart, Sr. Vice President and Chief Economist with the Insurance Information Institute.

I hope you and your family have a joyous holiday!

– Connie Doud, CPCU, CCP
