It’s an honor and a privilege to serve as President of the Los Angeles CPCU Society Chapter for the 2020 term. I have the pleasure of serving in this role with a fantastic and experienced board of directors that will help guide our organization going forward. I’m proud that our organization reflects the diversity we have within the insurance industry. This is evident by the composition of our board of directors, our keynote speakers, and meeting attendees.
One of our major achievements in 2019 was that leadership within our Chapter joined the USC Risk Management Program Advisory Council and will work with the next generation of insurance professionals as they transition from undergraduates to the insurance industry. We awarded our inaugural scholarship to a senior in the Risk Management Program at our All Industry Day event and will continue to partner in 2020.
This is an exciting time in the insurance marketplace with many changes rapidly approaching. We will support the development of insurance professionals by providing relevant and impactful lunch and learns, meaningful networking opportunities, and will have some fun along the way. We look to build on our momentum of strong attendance at our events in 2019 and ultimately, our mission will be to provide value to insurance professionals in the LA area and expand our member base. Since education is our primary mission, I will leave you with a relevant quote as we enter 2020: “Become a student of change. It is the only thing that will remain constant” Anthony D’Angelo
