I’d like to take this opportunity to recognize Erin Osier as Past Chapter President and thank her for her dedication and commitment to the success of the Iowa CPCU Society Chapter! Under Erin’s leadership we increased participation on the board and achieved new milestones in community outreach. Thank you Erin on behalf of the Iowa Chapter!

I would also like to thank Stephanie Wells, Sarah Middendorf, and Craig Green for hosting a successful charity golf outing last summer. As a result of their hard work and preparation we were able to present a $2,500 donation to Blank Children’s Hospital on January 9th.

On the morning of January 15th, over 50 CPCUs gathered at the Des Moines Golf Country Club to hear a presentation from Scott Leighter of Farm Bureau on Leveraging Technology to Fight Fraud. Scott spoke to the intriguing methods used by claims personnel to fight fraud, how technology continues to evolve, and how it enhances the ability to detect fraud.

Our next meeting will be held at the Glen Oaks Country Club at 11:30am on Thursday, February 19th. We will hear from a panel of agents providing “Agent Perspectives”. The panel will be moderated by Bob Skow and our panelists will be Greg LaMair, Beth Orr, and Trent Middendorf.

I encourage you to consider nominating an individual for induction into the Iowa Insurance Hall of Fame (IIHOF). IIHOF is looking for individuals that have contributed to the strength of the insurance industry in the State of Iowa. Nominations are being accepted now through March 1st. Please take a few minutes and visit for additional information and nomination instructions.
