CPCU Society Kicks Off 2004 with 60th Anniversary Celebration

February 12, 2004

“Celebrating the Past, Shaping the Future” is the theme of the CPCU Society’s 60th Anniversary celebration during 2004. The spirit of the year-long celebration promotes remembering the Society’s foundation for success and looking forward to its members’ continued contributions to the property/casualty industry.

“The CPCU Society’s 60th Anniversary is a celebration of our members and the strong legacy that has been our platform for success,” said Hugh McGowan, president of the CPCU Society. “We continue to build on our rich history and welcome new members as we evolve with the ever-changing insurance industry.” McGowan is President of McGowan Insurance Group, Inc., in Indianapolis.

An anniversary feature on the homepage of the Society’s Web site called “Remember When” takes a historical look at the past 60 years. Updated daily, “Remember When” includes significant historical facts about the CPCU Society and world events from 1944 to the present.

A year-long celebration

The Society will commemorate its 60th Anniversary with special activities throughout the year, and particularly during its two major meetings, the Leadership Summit in April, and the Annual Meeting and Seminars in October. The next phase of the CPCU Society’s “I Am” advertising campaign will highlight the 60th Anniversary and honor CPCU Society members. Scheduled to launch in March 2004, the ads will feature a variety of CPCU Society members and run throughout the year leading up to the CPCU Society’s 2004 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles. The meeting takes place Oct. 23-26, and will include special events focused on the 60th Anniversary celebration.
