The CPCU Society Columbus Chapter is Alive and Well!

Good morning fellow CPCU’s and friends of the Chapter.

The past two years have certainly been a challenge and on behalf of your Columbus CPCU Society Chapter Board of Directors, I hope you are all doing well.                                      

As we start 2022, I want to recognize our past President Carol Blaine, the entire Board, and the many volunteers for their leadership in guiding us through a very challenging year.  I am excited for what lies ahead for our Chapter and the CPCU Society and am thankful for the opportunity to serve as your Chapter President. 

Our Columbus Chapter has a deep and long history in our community and your 2022 Board is planning for a great year.  While we are still dealing with the effects and uncertainty of Covid, we are planning to deliver:

  • Relevant speakers at the forefront of our industry;

  • Opportunities for the next generation of insurance professionals through scholarships and education;

  • Leadership and networking opportunities for our members; and,

  • Care for our communities through our Good Works programs. 

Our first meeting to kick off the year will be on March 22nd where we will hear from Spenser Villwock, the Executive Director and President of the CPCU Society.  Spenser will share the vision and strategy of the CPCU Society.  Please visit our Columbus CPCU Society website to register for the event. 

Also, our annual Educational Micro-Grant program is now available.  We hope you visit Columbus CPCU Society website to learn more about this great opportunity to further your professional development.

While our Chapter has held steady over the past two years, we are excited for what lies ahead and to begin a process of rebuilding programming and events.  We look forward to seeing you this year and for what we can do together to grow our Columbus CPCU Chapter.

Best regards, 

Syd Eltringham, CPCU, CLCS, MBA

2022 President, Columbus CPCU Society Chapter
