Education & EventsEmployer Support
The Institutes CPCU Society Leadership Summit is about more than just your leadership role in the CPCU Society. It is also an opportunity to network and gain strategic leadership skills and industry knowledge to benefit you in your career.
When approaching your employer for support, we recommend that you follow these three simple steps:
Step 1: Do your research
Check out the 2018 Leadership Summit session descriptions, noting the sessions that will be most useful to you and your company. Be prepared to discuss how the session topics you identify can contribute to your professional development and, ultimately, the success of your business.
Step 2: Determine how you can add value
Brainstorm all the different ways you can apply what you learn to your workplace. For example, you can share knowledge about one or more of the educational sessions when you return. If you think of the Leadership Summit as a vehicle to grow not only your CPCU Society leadership role but also your company, you can readily show how your attendance will add value.
Step 3: Talk to your supervisor and/or HR representative
Once you have all of the relevant information, it’s time to talk with your employer. Feel free to use this additional resource, which outlines some of the benefits of the Leadership Summit in more detail.
