May 2018 President’s Message & ChapterGram

Register for the May Meeting at Embassy Club Downtown


What's the one thing? CPCU Society Leadership Council President and Chair Troy Baldwin asked us this question at the Leadership Summit in April. What's the one thing you can do to be more effective, to achieve your goals? As it relates to CPCU, my one thing is making the Iowa Chapter a strong, vibrant chapter with programming that exceeds our members' needs. This doesn't happen alone, the Iowa Chapter has an amazing board dedicated to serving our members and we have you, our members.
As we break for the summer, our programming will continue with a Professional Development event focused on Diversity and Inclusion in June and our Annual Golf Outing to raise money for the Blank Children's Hospital Fire Safety House. The Fire Safety House provides a hands-on learning experience for children to learn what to do in the event of a fire. You can read more about the fire safety house here. [click to continue…]

Register for April 2018 Meeting

Happy April! This month, a few of the chapter officers are travelling to Baltimore for the CPCU Society Leadership Summit.

While there, I will be presenting in my role as the Chair of the Personal Lines Interest Group on how to lead an interest group, create value for members, and collaborate with chapters. Now, if you are like some CPCU Society members, you are thinking...interest groups, what are those? [click to continue…]

March ChapterGram

Register for the March Ethics Meeting at EMC

I've always loved March, it is when we see the end of winter and the arrival of spring. I associate spring with a time for new growth and opportunity, renewal and the promise of new beginnings. It is a hopeful time after a long, dark winter.

For CPCUs it is also Ethics month, a time to affirm our commitment to leading ethical lives. As insurance professionals, CPCUs, and members of society, we should always strive to act in the highest ethical manner. As a CPCU we are bound by the CPCU Code of Professional Conduct which includes placing the public interest above our own, aspiring to raise the professional and ethical standards of the insurance and risk management profession, and assist in improving the public understanding of insurance and risk management.
