Welcome to 2015. January has now come and gone, we have all had our first pay cheque and professional and personal objectives for 2015 are now firmly in place.
It looks to be another interesting year for our sector with continuing changes and challenges.
Will the current issues in the oil and gas sector impact on premium spend in these areas? Will we see growth in the Scottish Economy? These are just a couple of thoughts that come to mind – I am sure you have many more.
With that in mind, it may be interesting to hear what will be said at our Keynote event on 3rd March which will focus on the general insurance market and ask the question – ‘Where are we now and where are we heading’ – make sure you register here.
I am now in my final few months of my presidential tenure and looking to complete my own objectives highlighted at the AGM in April last year.
We are finalising the mentor and mentee networking date for February and will let you know shortly so you can get the date in your diaries. I look forward to seeing everyone for our last two events, all attendees have benefited from attending.
Our Young Professional, Club FS and Professional Development Group events are still ongoing – click here for more details.
IASG will continue communication through LinkedIn and Twitter - are you connected?
Overall our membership statistics for IASG are fairly consistent, however we do know that there are many professionals within our community who are not members of CII - can we push with our colleagues the reasons behind this and feed their comments back to IASG.
We are looking to reach everyone who is working in our industry whether a CII member or not. There are lots of events and learning opportunities going on, we want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate and/or attend.
Finally as a volunteer council we are always looking for new members for our busy Council - if you are interested, please contact me - we can have a coffee and chat.
