Golf Outing

Annual Golf Outing

by Robert Conroy, CPCU, CIC on August 3, 2017

On Thursday, August 3rd the Iowa CPCU Chapter will host their annual golf outing at Willow Creek Golf Club in West Des Moines, IA. This annual 18-hole best shot event will provide an opportunity for CPCU Society members and their family and friends to get together in a fun and relaxed environment while also giving back to the community. All proceeds from the event will be used to help fund a fire safety house that will travel around to local schools and events to help teach fire safety.

You do not need to be a CPCU to participate! The entry fee will include green fees, range balls, use of a cart, and a cocktail hour with appetizers afterward (starting at approximately 4:30). Prizes will be awarded! We will try our best to get incomplete foursomes matched up.

All registrations and sponsorships can be paid via credit card on the Eventbrite website (link below) or via check. Checks can be made out to Iowa CPCU Society Chapter and sent to:

Iowa CPCU Society Chapter
Attn: Debra R Conroy, CIIP, CIC

September 2014 President's Message

With summer coming to a close, kids back in school and the weather starting to change, it can only mean one thing... Time to reconnect with your fellow CPCUs!  What better way to kick off our fall season than with a chapter meeting at Exile Brewery? Please join us on September 18th at 3:00pm at Exile for some discussion on brews and breakdowns. Lynne Rush, Director of Risk Management for Hartford Steam Boiler will be our guest speaker.

On October 16th start your morning off right with a lovely breakfast at Des Moines Golf & Country Club, followed by the always informative Legislative Update by Bob Skow.

November 7th will be the annual Insurance Industry Day (I-Day). This year we are shaking it up and rolling the dice with a new venue – the conference center at Prairie Meadows. Guest speakers include former Iowa Insurance Commissioner, Terri Vaughan, CEO of Nationwide Insurance, Steve Rasmussen, and "Berkshire Beyond Buffett" author Lawrence Cunningham, just to name a few. You will not want to miss this event!

We have some fantastic opportunities lined up this fall to network, learn and give back to the community. I hope to see you there!
