As Incoming 2016 President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the CPCU Society, I would like to thank all of those in attendance at our December 8th Charity Fundraising Happy Hour benefiting the LA Regional Food Bank. Through your support and generosity, our chapter will be able to donate $1,000 to help feed families in need this holiday season.
Our inaugural “Employer of the Year” Award was presented to Lori Hunter, CPCU on behalf of Worldwide Facilities for their continued support of the LA Chapter. Over the past year, they have sponsored a number of their employees in their studies, having two New Designees qualify in 2015, and a number of potential New Designees qualify in 2016. They also sponsored a table at our Annual All Industry Day celebration in October, and regularly sponsor employees to attend our luncheon meetings and networking events. Thank you again to Worldwide Facilities for all of our support!
We had a great turnout for the event, which included the installation of our incoming 2016 Board of Directors presided by Jim Taylor, our Southern California Territory Governor. Our board was able to mingle with a number of CPCU Candidates and New Designees planning the trip to Hawaii next September. We also had eight Past Chapter Presidents in attendance.
Please Save The Date for our first monthly meeting of 2016: John Barrett’s “State of the Insurance Industry” address starting at 11:30 on Tuesday, January 12th located at the LA Athletic Club.
I look forward to seeing you all soon. Have a safe and happy holiday!
Kate Fuchs, 2016 LA Chapter President
