February Meeting Registration Page

Cold weather doesn’t stop a CPCU from coming out to listen to our speakers, eat together and honor two of our members! On January 21, we met at the Des Moines Social Club downtown. This venue was new for us and we had a full meeting. Tom O’Meara gave us an update on the current issues from the Insurance Commissioner’s office. Tom indicated certificates of insurance are once again becoming a concern. Cyber liability is also becoming a big concern for our industry due to the vast amount of personal information we store. Jared Kirby provided information on the Iowa Insurance Fraud Bureau and how he decides which fraud cases to investigate.  [click to continue…]

March 2015 ChapterGram

On February 19, nearly 90 CPCU’s attended our meeting at Glen Oaks Country Club. We heard from a panel of individuals, Greg LaMair, Beth Orr, and Trent Middendorf, on “Agent Perspectives”.

The panel was moderated by Bob Skow, CPCU. The panel and moderator provided great insights on topics such as relationship building, educating and retaining younger workers, and challenges faced by the insurance industry. Thank you to everyone who attended.

March is Ethics Month for the CPCU Society. More than 20 years ago, the CPCU Society helped create Ethics Awareness Month to focus attention on this important topic each year. Ethics is a critical component of the CPCU designation, and we should always keep in mind the nine canons that make up the CPCU Professional Code of Ethics. We strive to hold ethics in the forefront of our minds, and have a responsibility to be ethical business leaders in our workplace and in our communities. Additional information about Ethics Day registration can be found on page 4 of this month’s ChapterGram. [click to continue…]
