We want to start off by wishing you a Happy Holiday Season and Happy New Year. We appreciated everyone who came out to listen to Ronald Taylor of Nederveld Inc. in November who presented on fire and explosion, origin and cause investigations. As always, we hope that you were able to bring back much good information from this seminar and tell those who were not able to attend what new information is being passed on regarding our daily battle against insurance fraud.  

We are excited to announce that on Friday January 18th we will have Kwhamec Rojas, Senior Strategic Analyst for NICB who will discuss social media and some tools when conducting investigations. This is YOUR Chapter and you have a dynamite Board serving you. I know that you all will continue to support the Chapter as we move ahead in the coming years and continue to grow and serve our members.  Thanks to all of you for all that you have done and will continue to do..

The Board asks that if you would like to recommend a training topic/speaker, please make your thoughts known to Chris Block, who is our Training Chair for the Chapter. His e-mail is chris.block@farmersinsurance.com.  It is with such suggestions in the past that our training has stayed on the mark for what the membership needs to be exposed to. The presentation is scheduled from 9 A.M. to 11 A.M.  Networking and coffee will begin at 8:30 A.M.

As a reminder, please mark your calendars for the meeting dates shown on the website so you are sure not to miss a meeting. Keep in mind that our bi-monthly meetings are held in January, March and November on the third Friday of the month, that the Annual Seminar is in May and the September Networking meeting is held at the Bloomingdale Golf Course.  The Board hopes to see all of our members at the meetings.

Thanks to ALL who make this Chapter the success that it has been and for your support as we go forward. It is YOUR involvement that makes this Chapter what it is.

As always,
David O’Carroll
