May 2016 Meeting Registration 

Spring has sprung! April has had its share of showers. The late April thunderstorm with weather warnings across the Midwest was a sign the storm season is upon us. I pray “Mayday” is not the distress signal we will think of this storm season.

Ted Lussem, Jeff Jeffus, Kevin Seward and I recently went to Algona to see our fellow CPCUs and new designees in the North Central Iowa sub-chapter, which will celebrate their 10 year anniversary in 2017. I haven’t heard the words “Mayday, Mayday” in a long time but when I heard Lisa Molsberry, Vice President of the sub-chapter, use this, I enjoyed their creativity and desire to promote education in their workplace. They will be promoting continuing education for all staff with the theme Mayday! The North Central sub-chapter, although small, also continues to support their community by Adopting a Highway.

2016 is the largest new designee class we have ever had in the Iowa chapter, including 5 new designees in the North Central sub-chapter and 2 new designees in the Grinnell sub-chapter for an Iowa total of 125. The last window for test taking ends June 15 and the number of new designees keeps increasing daily. Get ready to see Out of Office Messages from many of our fellow new designees in September as we head to Honolulu, Hawaii for the annual conferment ceremony. [click to continue…]

Change for a Change Program 2014

Kossuth County CARE Team Benefits From NCI-CPCU Change Jar.

The NCI-CPCU Subchapter collected loose change this past year with its "Change For A Change" program.  A jar is placed in the break room next to the vending machines at Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company.

Thanks to this program, the NCI-CPCU subchapter was able to donate $100.00 in personal hygiene items to the Kossuth County CARE team to help those in need.
