Register for December Meeting

The holiday season will make the month of December speed by and my term as President complete. You may not know that I-Day is not just a one day event for a few of us. Ted Lussem, Kevin Seward and I had the opportunity to visit several companies on November 9th with Mike Koscielny, President Elect of the CPCU Society. We stopped at The IMT Group, EMC Insurance Companies, Grinnell Mutual, Nationwide, GuideOne and NCMIC and had to the chance to speak to new designees, members of the Iowa Chapter, future designees working towards their CPCU and executives of these companies to encourage participation in the Society and completion of the CPCU designation.

On November 10th we celebrated almost 50 of our new designees. You and our new designees are among 2% of the industry professionals with a CPCU. Congratulations to all. We hosted two speakers who talked to us about Personal Lines. Ray Thompson indicated that small companies can compete in this competitive market through local expertise, value added services and intelligent underwriting. Kim Hazelbaker encouraged us to review the top safety pick on the IIHS website to learn how safe your car is compared to others. [click to continue…]

December 2012 President's Message

If you weren’t able to join us for I-Day you missed an informational treat. I know I learned a lot regarding weather modeling and how it can predict losses in the future. Peter Miller, President of The Institutes, got us up to date on the merger of The Institutes with the CPCU Society and the effect it has on CPCUs. Look for extra information with your 2013 dues invoice about the new benefits available to you.

I want to personally welcome our new designees to our chapter and congratulate them on their accomplishments. We want to thank Peter Miller and David Medvidofsky for conducting the conferment.
