by Rodney Wilson, President, Atlanta Chapter CPCU Society

It is with great honor that I greet you on behalf of the Atlanta CPCU Society Chapter.  I would like to acknowledge and thank all of our past officers, board of directors, committee chairs, and volunteers for your contribution to our success.  Also, I would like to thank our 2016 officers, board of directors, committee chairs, and current volunteers for their time, commitment, and dedication thus far.

As one of the leading Chapters, we have a very active and diverse membership.  This is only made possible through the continued support of the many companies, agencies, brokers, law firms, principals, and others who support their employee involvement within the Chapter.  Our most valuable resource are those individuals who are willing to assist with the growth and development of others through volunteerism.  If you want more information on how to become more involved, please complete our interest form https://atlanta.cpcusociety.org/get-involved/volunteer/application .

Our schedule of events for 2016 is different from those in prior years.  We are excited to offer you over 12 hours of continuing education credits.  All of our lunches will be held at Maggiano’s Perimeter location.  Our annual charity golf tournament will be held at Windermere Golf Course on May 16, 2016.  Our biggest event, Insurance Day, will be held on August 19, 2016 at the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead.  Additional social and business events are planned throughout the year and can be found by clicking the attached hyper link https://atlanta.cpcusociety.org/meetings-events?sort_by=field_ievent_date_value

The CPCU designation is the premier professional designation in the property-casualty insurance industry.  Our goal is to offer you an opportunity to gain valuable industry knowledge, assist you with obtaining career goals, and improve your current skill set while networking with other insurance professionals.  We can offer you developmental and leadership opportunities at the local and National level.  Make this your year to get onboard and get involved.

To our 2016 New Designees, we would like to say congratulations!  You should be proud of your achievement.  We will be holding a local conferment celebration during lunch at our Insurance Day, August 19, 2016.  Peter L. Miller, CPCU, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Institutes, will be our lunch speaker.  Please join us as we celebrate your achievement.  But, don’t let the excitement stop there.  As a first time member of the Atlanta Chapter, you can take advantage of all of the complimentary events throughout the year.

My vision for the Atlanta Chapter is to make this an unforgettable year.  This can only be done through membership engagement and retention.  My ultimate goal is to make sure that we provide you with an opportunity to further your career on a professional and personal level.   I look forward to meeting some of you at our luncheons or charity events.

To all our members and non-members, thank you for your support!

Rodney Wilson, CPCU, CLU, ChFC, FFSI, FLMI, AINS
