Register for I-Day 2017

LAST CALL for tickets to the annual I-Day event on November 2 at the Holiday Inn Des Moines Airport. It is not too late to purchase your tickets and attend this year’s unprecedented event. This event is full of great speakers, the induction of the 2018 Chapter Officers, and the conferment of the 2017 New Designees. Also, as previously announced, Officers from the National CPCU Society will be sworn in for 2018. We will finish with a reception celebrating our chapter’s 65th anniversary and allow for plenty of networking with your peers and Society Leadership. Click on this link for more information and to purchase your tickets by Sunday, October 29.

Our final meeting of 2017 is at the Wakonda Club on December 12th, at 3:30 pm. Our speaker is Travis Green, Program Chair for DMACC’s Computer-Aided Design Department. Travis will be discussing 3D printing. This event will close with a social cocktail hour.

It is getting close to the start of the holiday season and my favorite season, Fall. The scenery is constantly changing and the colors continue to amaze. But what I like most about this time of year is that Thanksgiving is near! The time for food, family, friends, and for many of us, football! And even though we should practice it all year long, it is one of the few times during the year that we all think about what we are thankful for and let those we care about know how they impact our lives.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, especially with my growing family. But, I would be remiss to not express how truly thankful I am for the experiences I have had, and relationships made, throughout my journey so far with the CPCU Society. These past nine years have brought me to many new places around the country, but more important are the amazing people I have gotten to know in our local insurance industry. As my term nears its end this year, I am looking forward to my next opportunity as Chapter Governor for our chapter, as well as the Cedar Valley and Quad Cities Chapters. It will also be nice just to relax and enjoy all of the benefits the Iowa Chapter provides.

Thank you to all who have helped me along the way and made this a wonderful experience.  As we wrap up the 2017 year, we are finalizing the 2018 board structure. If you are looking at getting more involved, please reach out to me or any of the board members. This is a good way to keep up to date on our industry, as well as obtain great leadership experiences. This chapter relies on your willingness to volunteer and we greatly appreciate any and all involvement.
Again, thank you for your continued support and have a happy Thanksgiving!

- Adam Haugerud, President, Iowa CPCU Society Chapter
