President's Message 2019

Welcome to CAIFPA 33rd Anniversary Gala! I am honored to continue the 2nd year term as the President of such a great organization for 2019.

CAIFPA is a 33 years strong non-profit organization that seeks to unite and to connect professional members of the life, health, property & casualty insurance and the financial services industry. Throughout the years, CAIFPA hosts seminars, forums and oversea insurance company visits where we strive to provide our members the education and experience to enrich their practices.

2018 was a remarkable year for CAIFPA where we saw an increase in our membership, a revamp of our website, and usages of multiple social media to build awareness as well as to connect with our members. In addition, we welcome new directors on board to broaden our reach and raise our profile. With the many changes, we experienced positive feedback from members. Although we are changing, but one thing we do NOT change, the core values of CAIFPA, which is the services we provide to our members and communities.

I couldn't have done all of this without the board of directors' support and their dedication. Together we took action to accomplish our goals. Hence this year we adopt the theme "Make It Happen." It speaks of a message "To Infuse Our Life With Action, Make our Own Future and Make Our Own Hope."

I am excited to celebrate with all of you at the CAIFPA 33rd Anniversary Gala. I want you to know how much I appreciate your valuable contribution in making another successful year. On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our continued supporters and happy to welcome new sponsors and friends to our organization.

Wishing you all a Blessed, Prosperous and Happy 2019!
