The CPCU Society has established an emergency relief fund to provide assistance to people living in areas affected by Hurricane Katrina.
The Society’s Board of Governors voted unanimously to create the fund after receiving numerous phone calls and e-mails from members asking how they can help hurricane victims. The Board also agreed to match contributions from its members and chapters up to $25,000. The CPCU Society will give all donations collected to the American Red Cross on behalf of its chapters in the affected areas.
The CPCU Society also launched a discussion board on its Web site for members to exchange information about how Katrina has affected them, offer assistance, post messages about traveling to the affected areas, and share their thoughts or concerns.
