President's Message - February 2013
I hope this message finds our membership doing well and getting off to a good start in 2013. The club leadership has been at full speed regarding the planning of club events, as well as making some significant technological changes in the way we do business.
First, I would like to acknowledge the board of directors. This group that you have elected is diligently working non-stop on many fronts. Not only are they our event planners, but they are also addressing such matters as membership, our newsletter, website, sponsorships and advertising, and I can go on and on. Thank you!!!
For those of you that have contacted our office, you most likely spoke with our executive director, Sue Van Newkirk. Sue oversees the club office, handles memberships, mailings, events etc. The club would not function as intended if it were not for our executive director. Feel free to contact Sue by phone or e-mail, if you should have any questions, or suggestions for the club.
In December, the club held our Holiday Party on December 6th. along with a holiday happy hour on December 20th at Easy Street Downtown. Thanks to J W Waudby, assistant chair Kurt Keller and the rest of their committee for their efforts on organizing the Holiday Party. We had a great night of dinner and dancing as well as enjoying the Holiday spirit with members and their guests and a special thanks to our monetary donations from our sponsors. Upcoming events will be a wine and dine event on February 20th at Franco's Restaurant in Dormont and a Penguin Hockey outing on March 19th. Other events that we will be holding in 2013 are our annual Golf outings in June and September, CE classes, Rivers Casino and much, much more. Please make it a point to come to these events, which is a great way to spend a day or evening out and an opportunity to meet and socialize with other members.
I-Day is quickly approaching and will be held on April 25th, at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh. The I-Day committee, chaired by Mark Uhalic, has been in full swing since January, planning for a full day of events. If you have never attended this event, you're missing out on what's been known as one of the target networking and informational events in the Country. As part of this event, we honor the Insurance person of the year. This person is someone within the Insurance Industry, who has for many years, contributed to the success and reputation of the Insurance club. More information will be forthcoming, but it's not to early to think about your nomination.
As I close on this installment of the Presidents message, be sure to check our website often at www.insclubpgh.com. All of the club events, including the ability to join the club, sign up for events, view the clubs newsletter and other insurance related matters are all covered here. Be sure to patronize the advertisers and sponsors of our organization. Without their contributions, the club would not exist as it does today.
Rich Perla, President
