Thank you to all the board members that served in 2013.   I would like to offer a very special thank you to Amy Branch for serving as Secretary for many years.  She put in a lot of time and dedication to our Chapter.   She was responsible for organizing leadership tasks and completing and submitting our Circle of Excellence document to the Society on an annual basis.  Amy is a true professional and a testament to our Chapter success.

In November 2013- Jane Wahl, CPCU Society President Elect spoke of how important it is to mentor young professionals.  She encouraged our new designees to set professional goals and asked that they rethink their perspective regarding taking on leadership roles within the Chapter.

The CPCU Society is committed to providing you with continuous opportunities to:

  • Enhance your knowledge
  • Empower yourself to succeed
  • Engage with other industry professionals

Achieving the CPCU designation is not an ending but a beginning for your continued professional development.  What are your goals?

Who was your mentor that changed the path of your professional journey?  Can you inspire/mentor others?

Our January speaker will discuss Loss Control opportunities within our industry.  Please bring along students or other professionals that may be interested in pursuing Loss Control as a career. The discussion will also offer valuable insight into the loss control process and benefits to the underwriting process.


I am looking forward to a great year as Chapter President!
