History

About Us!

The DC Chapter was chartered in 1952 as one of the original CPCU society chapters. Over the years, we have accomplished many things. The most noteworthy include donating tens of thousands of scholarship funds to worthy students majoring in Insurance or Actuarial studies at Howard University, regularly participating in Good Works in the community, including KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now) events, and our annual toy drive and cash donations to benefit the Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign.  

We have conducted in person and virtual events for fellowship and education, including CE events, Capital I Day, happy hours after work, and our annual CPCU Conferment Ceremony and Holiday Luncheon.  

The DC Chapter has close relationships and collaborations with other insurance groups in the area, such as MWAIIA, Potomac RIMS, and the Maryland CPCU Chapter.  With COVID, we have expanded our reach to other Chapters, as we pivoted to expand our online presence with educational webinars to help meet the needs of our members and surrounding community.

Below is a list of our past Chapter Presidents, to whom we are forever grateful for their service to our chapter.

 

Thank you to our past leadership!
