President's Message

Dear Members,

I am honoured to have been elected to lead Chartered Insurance Institute of Northampton for a two year term as President as we head in to its 114th year. As we move away from a requirement to host CPD and social events on line, as an Institute, I am keen to see more face-to-face networking over the coming months, whilst maintaining a diverse virtual CPD offering to our Members.

The Council of the Insurance Institute of Northampton, which has seen some changes over the last few months, comprises an incredibly strong and committed team of Insurance professionals, whose support I am unfailingly grateful for. Having collectively navigated through the Covid 19 pandemic, and the challenges this presented in terms of continued delivery of CPD and social events, under the helm of my predecessor, Chris Emmanuel; they are equally keen to see the Institute “opening up”, allowing increased networking with our Members.

I would like to extend my thanks to Crawford & Company, whose continued support of my engagement with the Chartered Insurance Institute is unfaltering.

This coming year I would like to focus on our Institute locally, and the members that comprise same. Delivering CPD events which are appropriate for our membership demographic; providing events suitable for Young Professionals to encourage their engagement and hosting a formal soiree later in the year open to both Members and guests.   

Chloe Nickless, President, Insurance Institute of Northampton
