May 2015 President’s Message

2014 Chapter Invite

We had an outstanding Chapter meeting on April 16 at the Embassy Club in downtown Des Moines. Patrick Phelan, Fire Protection Engineer with the City of Des Moines, and Kevin Hovick, COO of EMC spoke about The Younkers Fire- A Year Later.  This topic was very near and dear to many members of our chapter, especially those employed with EMC Insurance. Thank you to all who ventured out to join our largest meeting (outside of I-Day) in the past several years!

Please plan to join us on May 19 for the Iowa Insurance Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony being held at Drake University. We will honor the following new inductees into the Insurance Hall of Fame: Richard Friedman, Bruce Kelley, Jennie LeGates, W. Harold Petersen, and James Sharp (awarded posthumously). This is an evening of networking and celebrating our great industry. Three of the five individuals being inducted this year are CPCUs, making their induction even more meaningful to our membership. 

We hope you can join us for breakfast at Des Moines Golf and Country Club on May 21 at 7:30 a.m. Kurt Pearson will be presenting on Personal Investments, Elder Care, Wills & Trusts. In  addition to our speaker, we will be recognizing our Ted Lussem Scholarship winner. This will be our last regular Chapter meeting for the Spring as we take a break for summer. We will resume regular monthly Chapter meetings in September.

Be sure to join us on June 23 at Principal Park for the Iowa Cubs versus the Omaha Storm Chasers at 7:05 pm. It will be an evening of fun for adults and children alike! You can sign up for the event on our Facebook page. Our next Good Works event will be on June 25 at the Animal Rescue League of Des Moines from 9 am to 12 pm. Make time to come out and support a worthwhile cause. On July 14, we will be hosting our Annual Charity Golf Outing at the Legacy Golf Course in Norwalk. The best-ball tournament will have a shotgun tee at 11:30 a.m. with prizes and dinner afterwards. Grab your own foursome, or sign up as an individual and we’ll pair you up. Golf-ers of all levels of play are encouraged to play. Treat yourself to a stress free afternoon of golf!

We’d love to see you at one, or all, of our upcoming events.

Iowa Chapter member Wade Sheeler has received the Gerrond Award for outstanding CPCU volunteer. Congratulations Wade!

Have a great summer everyone.
