Born out of an idea discussed at the 2014 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, 3iG is once again paving new roads to expand our outreach to the insurance industry. The Latin American Connection initiative aims to connect with CPCUs and non-CPCUs interested in the Latin American market and to help future CPCU students from the region earn the designation.
