April 2014 President's Message

Hooray, spring is finally upon us! It was a long winter and we can now look forward to enjoying the months ahead. Personally, I am looking forward to getting outdoors: taking my kids to the park, golfing, training for Dam to Dam, and yes, even yard work.

As a chapter, we also have things to look forward to this spring.

Change in Leadership. For the past few years, the Iowa Chapter was under the capable leadership of CPCU Society Governor, Mike Happe. Although Mike is based out of Minneapolis, he was a great champion of our chapter. Mike attended numerous chapter and board meetings during his tenure and created the annual Midwest Regional Leadership Summit. Due to restructuring of the Society’s territory, Mike Happe is no longer our governor. While he will be missed, we are very excited to work with our new Governor, Kevin Seward!  Kevin has been
involved with the Iowa Chapter for many years. Since serving as our chapter President in 2007-08, Kevin has been active with the CPCU Society on a national level. Please join me in congratulating Kevin in his new role!

Honoring those who served. On May 20, five deserving people will be inducted into the Iowa Insurance Hall of Fame. Registration information can be found on page 4 of the ChapterGram. I hope you can join us at the ceremony to honor the recipients. Without them, our insurance industry here in Iowa would look very different.

Playing for a cause. You do not need a handicap to play in the annual Charity Golf Outing. This year, the best-ball tournament will be held on Thursday July 17at 1pm at the Tournament Club of Iowa in Polk City. What a great way to play TCI, raise money for charity, and network with your fellow CPCU’s. I hope you will join us!
