It is an honor to serve as your President of the Arizona Chapter of the CPCU Society in 2019!
This year, the Chapter will celebrate 64 years of strong presence in the state! From the early beginning in1955 as the Central Arizona Chapter of the CPCU Society, and later through a merger with the Southern Arizona Chapter of the CPCU Society in 2008, we have emerged as an award winning, prosperous, well managed, and ethically led Chapter.
With outstanding, talented, and well qualified board members, directors and committee chairs, we will achieve even greater accomplishments in 2019. We want your membership and engagement to be of value to you, the insurance organizations, businesses and independent agencies you represent.
In 2019 we will again provide an excellent array of speakers during chapter luncheons to share the latest updates on emerging trends in the insurance industry (think: disrupters, technologies that help enhance safety, insurance companies’ changing business models, public policy issues related to technology and innovation such as self-driving vehicles, telematics, and legalities of data access and analytics resulting from self-driving vehicles.) In addition, we will explore the insurance industry talent “crisis” as more baby boomers retire and the competition heats up for highly skilled, diversely talented insurance professionals.
2019 promises to be an exciting year for the AZ Chapter of the CPCU Society! I look forward to seeing each of you along the way!
