A Message From Your President...

Greetings! As this CPCU year comes to a close, I would like to thank all the members that have worked so hard to make this year successful. I would especially like to thank the board, officers and committee chairs for their dedication and commitment. The chapter has accomplished many goals. I know the members will benefit from these accomplishments. I have listed some of the highlights below to remind us of our successes. I do think that we have "Influenced the Future."


I hope to see everyone at our upcoming golf outing on May 20. We need to celebrate all these successes.
