Good Works

This is the team of people who makes wonderful decisions on how to support local community organizations in need of financial support or volunteers.  Each year this Committee distributes every dollar of the proceeds from our Annual Charity Golf Tournament to deserving charitable organizations.

Visibility Committee

This committee is dedicated to enhancing one of our core values of Diversity and Inclusion under our National CPCU Strategic Plan. A significant objective is assisting the industry in attracting a stream of diverse new talent. Our National CPCU Society encourages chapters to offer at least one program a year to explore and promote diversity,by putting together programs to understand other people, ideas, and opportunities, and to attract diverse new talent. This committe works tirelessly to meet that goal!

Also, under the Diversity committee, we house our Candidate Development committee. This committee is dedicated to encouraging those who are currently studying for their CPCU -  and also those who may want to begin their CPCU journey, but need encouragement and direction.  Outreach is key here, where a wide range of activities take place -  from meeting with Young Professional Groups to partnering with colleges, universities and high schools to engage the next generation of insurance professionals.
