Hurricane Irma - Attention Annual Meeting Attendees - Orlando, FL
2017 CPCU Society Annual Meeting CANCELED Orlando FL
President's Message - September 2017
Hello MN Chapter Members and Friends!
This month I will take a few moments talking about our communications. Those of us that read the Chaptergram every month can see how beneficial it is to keep everyone informed and up to date on CPCU events. It also provides many other great informational articles. If there is something of interest you would like to be published, let us know.
Did you know we also have a Facebook Page? We would love to see you “Like” us and follow the news and information that we provide weekly on that site. You can also comment and share with other CPCU’s and industry peers.
How does all this great information in the Chaptergram and on the Facebook page get there? It is due to our awesome “Communications Committee”. Like all the rest of our committees, those on the communications committee are volunteers. They put a lot of hard work and time into making the Chaptergram and Facebook page as good as it is. It takes time to put the articles together so that all of us can enjoy the great information that is provided. On behalf of the CPCU board, I want to thank the committee for their hard work and time. We could not provide the best Chaptergram we have ever had without the committee members. Thanks to Judie Babcock, Chelsea Schafer and Even McGrath!
We had some fun and social time on August 23rd Tailgating and the St. Paul Saints game. Check out the photo gallery. We had 28 people attend. This included CPCU’s and family members. This is a fun event and is becoming bigger and bigger every year. We hope to see even more attend next year. It is a great way to meet new people and network. Photos from 2016 too!
