March blows in many things this month. We start off with Ethics Day, March 6th, at Drake University. The speaker will be Jeff Lanza, a retired FBI agent. He will be speaking on Leadership Integrity: How to Prevent the Extinction of the Ethical Business Leader.” Our chapter’s Ethics Chair, Bruce Kelley, will be the Master of Ceremonies. Complete program details can be found in this issue of the ChapterGram.  As CPCUs, we hold ethics very high and have a responsibility to be ethical business leaders in our workplace and in our community.  Insurance is a business of upmost trust.
