Mentor Program

Mentoring Committee

  • Purpose: to provide a forum for college students, new designees & current members to network and learn more about the Central Illinois CPCU Chapter & its Committees.
  • 2 subcommittees: College Mentoring and Chapter Expo.
  • College Mentoring Program matches mentors with college mentees which have an interest or focus on insurance and/or CPCU. (Students have Insurance, Actuary, Finance, or Business Background and are interested or pursuing their CPCU)
  • Contacts - ISU: Katie School of Insurance & Gamma Iota Sigma Insurance Fraternity, Illinois Wesleyan, & Heartland
  • 2 events; fall & spring  (Social Event and Educational Event)
  • Social/Networking event 2/21 with the CPCU chapter-Dinner & concert at the Center for Performing Arts. Last year the social event was at Joe’s Station House pizza
  • upcoming educational event: TBA, last year we were at ISU where Joe Harr from SF spoke on the topic of Disruptive Technology in the Insurance Industry
  • 12 mentor/mentee pairs currently & we are always looking for anyone interested in being a mentor (suggestions to increase mentee numbers)
  • 2nd sub-committee organizes the Chapter Expo which is an annual event to showcase all the individual Central Illinois Chapter Committees, encourage everyone to join a committee and give an opportunity to discuss the College Mentoring Program.
  • 2013 will mark our 12th event.
  • The Expo is usually held in September as the kickoff meeting for the Chapter, we always welcome help with the planning process & meet on a monthly basis until closer to the event. (Speaker ideas?  Thoughts to encourage attendance?)
  • Both subcommittees are equally exciting to work on and I encourage & welcome your participation on either or both. Thank you.
