West Hartford,CT 06117


The CT Chapter is having a birthday!  The CT Chapter was the 10th CPCU chapter to be founded back on September 10, 1948, and has been a driving force in promoting the education of new insurance colleagues as well as providing them with leadership opportunities and professional kinship once they have received the designation. As you aware, Hartford, Connecticut has been the hub of the Insurance industry for over two centuries, and it is only fitting to fete one of the oldest chapters of one of the earliest professional designations. 

We will be holding our gala event on Thursday, September 28th at the Pond House in West Hartford, starting at 5pm. The event will highlight our new CPCU designees in addition to honoring our history as a Chapter of the CPCU Society. It is our honor to have Matt Dolan, President North America Specialty and Executive Vice President, Global Risk Solutions, at Liberty Mutual Insurance as our Keynote Speaker.

New Designees and Past Presidents are free to attend; Chapter Members receive a reduced price of $25.  Guests will be charged $45 for a sit down plated meal and reception.  A cash bar will be included.

Reserved Company Tables will be available for $450 for a table of 10 or a half table of 5 for $225. Sponsorships will also be available: $600 Gold, Silver $425, Bronze $275.  Please contact Noreen Kuziak at for any questions or additional details.

Please join us for a night of networking and celebration as we look forward into the future of our industry.
