Good day, Deep South Chapter!

A big thank you goes to everyone who attended the January meeting, where we had our officer installation with Area Governor Greg Rose.  Our new board has been sworn in and we are ready to have a great year in 2014 for the Deep South Chapter.  The first half of the calendar year is filling up with excellent lunch meeting speakers (a year that will feature a number of different restaurant venues):

  • In March, we will welcome Mr. John Thomas of Best Group Benefits, who will present the latest on the Affordable Care Act
  • In April, Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Mr. Jim Donelon, who will be back to talk to us about all the latest industry news out of Baton Rouge

In May or June, we are excited to feature a CE workshop day that will give everyone an opportunity to earn continuing education credits, including an ethics piece.  A total of 7 or 8 CE credits will be available for those who wish to attend, and for a competitive fee.  More to come soon regarding our CE workshop day as we fine tune the planning and agenda.

Our next meeting will be on February 6th from noon to 1 pm, with a social beginning at 11:30 am, and will feature guest speaker Dave Thomas, new CEO of LA Citizens Property Insurance Corporation.  We look forward to meeting Mr. Thomas and getting his fresh perspective on all things LA Citizens.  We will meet at Andrea's Restaurant in Metairie.
