Happy New Year!


Your board and guest members met for our annual planning meeting on Saturday 1-7-17. We filled 2 open positions: Rodney Brennan moved from Director to Treasurer and his open Director position was filled by Jeraldine Hartson. Congratulations to both – they will be officially installed at our first membership meeting on March 22nd.


We are putting together a Survey that will be sent out next week and we are looking for your input on delivering membership meetings to you this year. Please take a few minutes to give us your feedback.


One of the major changes for all CPCU’s this year is the Continuing Education for CPCU’s program. I am attaching a 2 page document from The Institutes that explains the program. The program encourages CPCU’s to obtain the latest industry knowledge. One of several ways to earn credit is to attend an educational event provided by your local chapter. The reporting is done on-line via a reporting platform and the annual reporting fee of $189 is waived for members. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.


We are looking for corporate sponsors, if you or your company would be interested, please contact our Communications Chair: Natalie Sherod at for more information.


We also have a Committee for the Annual Meeting to be held in San Diego in 2018 that will be led by our President Elect, Jason Hopkins. If you have ideas or would like to serve on this committee please contact Jason at


I wish you much success in 2017 and on behalf of the entire board, we look forward to working with you this year!


In fellowship,


Jari Sutton, CPCU, ARM, CIC

San Diego CPCU Chapter President
