2018 Message from the Board

Wed, 01/17/2018 - 10:04

Dear Members,


The Board and myself wanted to quickly send a message that I hope you can share with your managers, human resources, etc., as we feel it is so important to extend a thank you to them for their support of you and our organization. 


As I reflected on my year as President of the Western Michigan CPCU Chapter in 2017, I found it so fulfilling leading this organization that continues to allow our members to act on their commitment to education, to support our local community, and to be ambassadors of Insurance and Risk Management education.  As a group, we not only continue to educate ourselves, but look to share our knowledge to other employees within our companies and those looking to enter the insurance business.


Leadership, integrity, and commitment…these are the words that come to mind when I think of the CPCU organization.   These are also words that can accurately describe productive and valuable employees in our business.  I have seen that being an active member of the Chapter can allow members to embody these sentiments.  I also have realized that taking time to accomplish these things does consume time from our everyday responsibilities.  This is why at the end of what was a great year, the Chapter leaders would like to take a quick moment to thank all the companies, managers, and co-employees that have supported our members and our organization.  Your support provides us the ability to fully benefit and experience what the CPCU Society has to offer.  We look forward to continually challenging members to stay current with the changes in our business and remain on their path of lifelong learning. 


Thank you.  We look forward to a great 2018 and hope to see more individuals reach the CPCU designation milestone soon!
