President’s Message: November 2016

I am honored and excited to be the President of the Insurance Club of Pittsburgh for 2017!I’d like to congratulate Mike McGroarty Jr. on a very successful year as President.The positive changes he implemented during his tenure will be felt for years to come. I’d also like to welcome our new Executive Director, Elaine Barnes.Elaine has been working with the club for many years, has served on our Board of Directors, and as I-Day Chair.Her experience with the club will be invaluable as we continue to build on our momentum as an organization.

Our Cvent event registration system and our new website are almost a year old!We’ve had a few hiccups along the way but, now that we are a year in, it will make the process of managing our events and membership much easier.This efficiency will allow the Board of Directors to focus on our primary objective for 2017… GROWTH!

The best way for us to grow our membership base is by word of mouth.If you enjoy the Insurance Club events, please make sure you sign up as a member and tell your friends and coworkers about our organization.It’s only $40 a year and it allows us to continue offering great events at a reasonable cost.

Speaking of great events, our annual Holiday Party will be taking place on December 1st at Cefalo’s restaurant in Carnegie, PA.This is our 3rd year at this location and it has become one of our most popular events.If you plan on attending, please consider inviting a friend or coworker who has never attended.We love new people!

We will also be having our annual Wine Tasting and and St. Patrick’s Day parties in February and March, respectively.Please check back for exact dates.

Finally, the 91th Pittsburgh I-Day will take place on Wednesday, April 5th.I-Day chairperson, Kristen Skender, and her team are already hard at work to bring you the one of the finest I-Day’s in the country.I also encourage you to join me on April 4th for our Presidential Dinner at the Wyndham Hotel.It’s a great way to kick off the event.

Thank you for your support!I look forward to a fantastic 2017!

Warmest Regards,

Kurt Keller
