If you are a talented author and subject matter expert with unique insights into the changing industry, we want to hear from you!


Interest Group Websites:

The CPCU Society's 14 interest groups keep our members ahead of the curve. Articles and topics that relate to a specific industry niche may be recommended for publication on one of our interest group websites. Prospective authors may reach out to a publications committee member below or to the chair of the respective interest group.

Have a question or want to discuss a potential topic? Email one of our Publications Committee members, below. Our Publications Committee members are here to help, and can advise on content, topics, deadlines and more.

Please note: One does not have to hold the CPCU designation or be a member of the Society to submit an article, although CPCUs and members of the Society may have priority for placement. The Society does not compensate authors for articles: instead, authors gain industry exposure and an effective platform for knowledge sharing.
