Dear Chapter Members and Friends
As 2018 opens, we can draw the curtain on what was - by any definition - a difficult year. The storms and wildfires tested the industry, but we again successfully provided the services that remain the backbone of our national economy. However, it is important to look back on 2017 and forward to 2018 with pride, knowing that the insurance sector continued to offer the necessary support to our insureds in their greatest times of need.
The 2017 New York CPCU Chapter similarly provided support to our members through a series of well-received and well-attended events. As I look forward to serving as President of the Chapter in 2018, I would like to thank 2017 Chapter President Robert Young for his exemplary leadership and dedication to the Chapter. In addition, many thanks to all the volunteers who spent countless hours planning and delivering these events. As we seek to maintain the pace set in 2017 throughout 2018, we will continue to share information with you about upcoming events. Our goal will be to focus on the evolving nature of our industry. These events offer outstanding networking opportunities, which is one of the hallmarks of the Chapter.
The first event, already introduced by Bob, is the collaboration between the New York Chapter and the Association of Professional Insurance Women (APIW). This is a lunchtime event being held on Thursday, January 11, 2018. The featured speaker is Inaki Berenguer, the Co-Founder of CoverWallet, the organization that was winner of the Best InsurTech Solution award for 2017. You can register online here.
I look forward to meeting up with you at this as well as other Chapter and industry events. Of course, please reach out to me directly at the contact information below with any suggestions for events, or organizations that you believe we could effectively team with. Also, if you would like to volunteer, feel free to contact me or one of the Chapter leaders. Any ability to supplement our existing relationships with additional industry groups is always welcome.
We hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events.
Steven Isenburg, CPCU
