President’s Message 2nd Quarter 2019
Having recently taken over the position of the 2019 San Diego Chapter President, I would like to thank every one of you. Our members are what makes our Society so great and my mission for 2019 is to drive up our membership and create additional value for being a member. We have several fun and informative events planned for the rest of the year. Coming up May 15th we will be having a Lunch & Learn featuring Todd Hyde from the US Midway. He will be talking about Discovering Midway’s surprises, milestones & disasters. Be on the look out for the registration email. In June we will be holding our member appreciation event at North Park Beer Co. and in August we will be holding a second member appreciation event at Petco Park – Padres vs. The Rockies. I hope that you will come out and join us for these wonderful events.
The IIAB I-Day was a great success with record breaking attendance. Two of our Board members, Janice Romero and Natalie Sherod hosted the CE portion of the morning by playing the Fun with Ethics Game. This 3-hour CE class was attended by over 70 people and we received some great feedback. Thank you again for all who turned out.
Me and two other board members had the opportunity to attend the CPCU Leadership Summit in Denver CO. and it was an amazing experience. There was so much opportunity to network and the sessions were a wealth of knowledge. Being a member and part of the board has really helped me gain additional information about our industry and build my confidence as a leader.
I encourage all of you to renew your membership and volunteer to support your local San Diego Chapter. If you would like to become more involved in our Chapter and help shape its future, I invite you to join us at our next board meeting, which is open to any current member. It will be held on Wednesday, May 1st, 2019 at Wawanesa Insurance in Mission Valley (9040 Friars Rd. Floor 4, Calgary Room) from 12:00pm to 1:00pm.
Be on the lookout for our emails with details on all the fun events outlined above. I look forward to seeing you and hope you a great summer! I can’t believe it’s almost here.
All my best,
Jeraldine Hartson, CPCU, ARM, AINS, CAWC
2019 CPCU Society San Diego Chapter President
