- John Walker
I am delighted to have been elected as President of the Insurance Institute of the Isle of Man for 2022/23 and look forward to working with many of you over the next twelve months.
The last two years have been challenging in many ways. I have been delighted with the way in which your local Council has responded to those challenges including working behind the scenes to smooth qualification issues for local students.
Our Education Committee has, and will continue to, work hard in scheduling high-quality CPD events that cater for the diverse interests and specialisms with the CII Group - incorporating the Personal Finance Society, Society for Mortgage Professionals as well as those working in the insurance sector.
Periods of lockdown conspired against planned social and networking events last year. We hope to be able to rectify this by organising several events during the next twelve months.
As a Council, we will be looking to expand member networking and mentoring opportunities. Your local Institute exists to support you: our members. We would love to hear from you as to how we can best provide that support. Our contact details can be found on the website.
My nominated charity for the year is Housing Matters who will share any charitable funds raised with the Insurance Charities.
I look forward to a successful year for our Institute and our members.

President, The Insurance Institute of the Isle of Man
