Happy New Year!

I am looking forward to a fun and exciting new year, setting my sights on a slate of new goals, and eliminating a few bad habits along the way!

I encourage you to be engaged in the Iowa CPCU Society Chapter. Actively participating in the chapter provides the opportunity to learn and improve your skills. With this in mind, I’d like to challenge you to encourage others from your company who don’t regularly attend our chapter meetings to join us on January 15 for our meeting at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club. We will be hearing from Scott Leighter on Leveraging Technology to Fight Fraud.

If one of your goals is to attend more Iowa CPCU Society Chapter meetings, please consider purchasing our 2015 Annual Meeting package. The package includes registration for each of our monthly chapter meetings and I-Day. In purchasing the annual meeting package you save the equivalent cost of one chapter meeting. You’re also automatically registered each month, so there’s no additional work on your part. In the event you’re unable to attend a meeting just send another individual as a substitute in your place. Please see our website www.cpcu-iowa.org if you’re interested in purchasing or would like more information about upcoming chapter events.

The December meeting held at Wakonda Country Club featured Megan Forgrave sharing details about the life and history of Dr. Norman Bourlag and The World Food Prize. The World Food Prize has a beautiful building in downtown Des Moines that is open to the public for tours during specified hours. Feel free to check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

We hope to see you at one, or several, of our programs in 2015. I appreciate having the opportunity to be part of the leadership of the Iowa CPCU Society Chapter. Let’s make it another memorable year!

- Kimberly D. Smetzer, CPCU, President, Iowa CPCU Society Chapter

obstacles which one has overcome while trying to succeed." - Booker T. Washington
