Greetings Members of California.
I am excited to begin this journey as your Council Director (CD). The next two years will be action-packed with anticipated growth and development throughout the state. As your CD, it is important that members are invited to be involved, presented with educational and networking opportunities as well as having an extended leadership ladder should they want to move up in this organization. The Public Relations and Membership Chairs have formed strong teams that will bring experience, knowledge, excitement and new ideas to California Council of IAIP. Please check the “YOUR TEAM” page on this website.
One of the first programs that we are inviting members to be involved in is the Ca Members Leadership Summit being held on July 28th. This is the first project your Council Cabinet will be working on as a team. It is for all members and if you are new to IAIP, I encourage you to attend. You can find more information in the Calendar section of this website. The Insurance Associates of Fresno (IAOF) is also working hard to prepare for the CA Council Meeting that will be held October 12th and 13th at the Hotel Piccadilly in FresYes. More information regarding this will be coming from IAOF shortly.
Communication is the key to a successful team and the organization, so as your Council Cabinet we plan on communicating with members as frequently as we can to keep you apprised of upcoming events and or programs. For Associations, kindly forward your current President, membership and program chair’s contact information to Dawn Manzano, CISR the Public Relations Chair@ firstname.lastname@example.org and Jenny Schaeffler, the Membership Chair @email@example.com. They will keep the Presidents and MAL’s of upcoming events. If you haven’t updated your personal profile on the IAIP website, please do as this is the way the Council Cabinet will be communicating with you.
If you have any ideas or would like to volunteer for a Chair or committee at the Council Meeting, please contact Laura Gutierrez, CIC, CPIW (NC Assistant) and Brooke Lesniak (SoCal Assistant) Helen Jang, CLP is still in the background assisting where and when I need it. You can also contact any member of the Council Cabinet.
Hold on, it’s going to be a bumpy ride but well worth the thrill!
Remember, together we are L.I.N.K.E.D. to the past, present, and future of IAIP.

April was a busy month for me and May will be just as busy. I hope you are all planning your IAIP May Insurance events. Please reach out to Dawn Manzano and Regina Lemanowicz if you are having an event so that it gets updated on the calendar. It would be great to have a lot of activity advertised.
I was able to visit South Bay Association of Insurance Professionals last month and will be attending Insurance Professionals of Santa Barbara’s Industry Night on the 16th of this month. Do you have an event that you would like Council Cabinet to attend? Are you reaching out to your PR and Membership Chairs and their liaison’s? If you invite, Council will come. I know a lot of you have elections and installations, just remember we are here to help where and when we can. We just need to know so that we can attend.
Please review the Ca Council website. There are a lot of updates and information. A BIG thank you to Regina for holding down the fort and keeping the website flowing. Please get your flyers for upcoming events to Regina and she will post them to the website.
As always, sending congratulations to those associations with new members. Growth and retention are the key to development of this association.
For most, don’t forget your IAIP renewal will be coming up. If you are employer paid, it’s that time to get the invoice submitted so that you don’t have a delay in your renewal processing.

Welcome to the California Council of IAIP’s website. I’m looking forward to an exciting time as the Northern California assistant to your new California Council Director, the fabulous Christine Chandler Tillett (even if she is a Broncos fan). We are all very excited for this year’s California Council meeting, which will be hosted by the Insurance Associates of Fresno on October 12, 2018. Christine and the host committee are planning a wonderful event, so we hope to see you all there. But first, don’t forget about the Leadership Summit being held at the DoubleTree Hilton in Santa Ana on July 28th. There will be amazing presenters giving us the “Back to Basics”, which I’m sure we can all use. I look forward to seeing all of you at the various events throughout the coming year.
