Greetings, Fellow RI CPCU Chapter Members,
It is my pleasure to serve as your RI CPCU Chapter president for the 2023 year. For those that don’t know me, I obtained my CPCU in 2003 with my conferment in New Orleans. 20 years already, where did the time go! I have been a member of the RI Chapter since obtaining my designation, serving on the board several years in a variety of roles.
For me, this year’s focus can be summed up in a couple words, chapter engagement and growth! You will hear me mention those words a lot in 2023. This year I’m very excited to bring back more in person meetings for the RI chapter. I’ve missed seeing people in person. We had a very successful meeting where we had our installation of new officers, our local conferment and presented the RI CPCU Cares grant winner presentation. The meeting at Chelo’s in Warwick was complimentary to all new CPCU Designees and RI Chapter members. I’m really looking forward to our next meeting so I can meet and see more RI Chapter members, their family and friends!
Our next meeting is this Thursday February 16th at a new venue West Passage in my hometown of North Kingstown RI (7835 Post Road, North Kingstown). We are excited to host Ellen Mecray from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). Ellen is the Regional Climate Director for the Eastern Region. Our event will take place at 6PM with registration starting at 5:30PM. It is a great place to check out.
We have been made aware that not everyone is getting our chapter emails, we are working on resolving that issue as soon as possible. In case you haven’t received our emails you can sign up for the next meeting using this link to register February RI CPCU Chapter Meeting
Please take a look at our chapter’s webpage as we post information regarding our chapter meetings as well as upcoming course offerings and much more.
I can’t wait to meet those of you I haven’t met yet. Thank you for your continued involvement and ongoing support of the CPCU Society and the RI Chapter.
Nicole S. Goodrich, CPCU
