September 2016 Meeting Registration

Records were meant to be broken and the Iowa CPCU Chapter broke a record this year for the number of new designees. No doubt, breaking the record was due to the annual meeting and commencement ceremony in Honolulu, Hawaii. Our chapter will be celebrating with 181 new designees in Hawaii from September 16 - 20. We are looking forward to keynote speaker, John Quinones, co-anchor of ABC Primetime, as well as hearing from Dewitt Jones, a professional photographer, film director and writer. In addition to the great speakers there will be classes on underwriting, claims, future of our industry, and career building to fill our days in Hawaii.

Back home in Iowa, we honor our new designees with a reception in Des Moines and at I-Day in November. Our reception was very well attended at Wellman’s on August 8 and we gave away a $50.00 gift card to Marcus Treimer based on participation in a networking activity during the reception. We had a good time meeting each other and we will hope to see everyone at the reception in Hawaii on Sunday, September 18 at the Hawaii  Convention Center from 3 - 4:30. An email was sent inviting new designees to the reception in Hawaii in mid-August. Please let us know whether you will be in attendance. [click to continue…]
