What Do Champions Do?
Champions may be asked to assist the Society in connecting with specific groups within their company, such as the staff responsible for deciding on sponsorship opportunities, or contacts within the Human Resources Department in charge of executive development or continuing education.
The champion need only provide a name and contact information, and the Society will follow up. In addition, champions of companies selected for a “Connections” visit by members of the CPCU Society’s Executive Committee will be asked to assist in arranging the visit.
The Society will rely on its champions to invite senior company executives to the Connections meeting, schedule an appropriate time, and secure meeting space.
Other possibilities include serving as the contact within your company or office for information about the CPCU designation or the CPCU Society.
Champions are also asked to alert the Society to company announcements or decisions that may impact CPCU Society member support. And, you may have the opportunity to accompany your company’s CEO or other top officers to special executive events at the Society’s Annual Meeting and Seminars.
