President’s Message 2018 – R. Queen

Welcome to the OIAA Windsor Chapter website. Please take a moment to view our upcoming events page or browse the photo gallery from past events. Our association strives for education of industry related professionals by hosting informative seminars on insurance related topics. We also host numerous events to raise funds for various local charities and invite you to view our charities page. In 2017/18 I am pleased to announce our executive was able to achieve another successful year. Our first event of the year involved a seminar discussing new technology such as drones and Uber and how the insurance industry will have to react accordingly based on these new risks. The seminar was presented by Dara Lambe of Lerner’s Law Firm and was very well received by our members. We were able to raise over $1,800 for the Windsor Goodfellows from our Christmas Luncheon. We proudly raised $6,500 that went to the Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade for The Cancer Society which took place at the Ambassador Golf Club. Our last event of the year, “Golfing Fore Deb” we raised $3,000 for Crime Stoppers. A special thank you to all of our social members for all of your continued support!

Our 2017/18 executive board: Robert Queen (President), Mike Hoffman (Past President and Provincial Delegate), Greg Steed (Vice-President), Tena Allen (Treasurer), Melissa Robb (Secretary) and Christopher Renaud (Director). I also note, a special thank you to Isobel Hunter who although retired from the industry and the OIAA Windsor executive, assisted one last time in arranging our WICC fundraiser.

With 2017/18 almost in the rearview we look forward to an exciting 2019. Our executive team will continue to provide our chapter members a great experience at each and every event that you attend.

Cheers!

Rob Queen, CIP
