Formed in 1966, CAIW is a national association of insurance professionals. CAIW focuses on education, networking, and personal development of individuals affiliated with the insurance industry, both directly and indirectly. CAIW provides insurance professionals with a forum to showcase their dedication to the consumer and the industry through programmes such as the Insurance Information Campaign.
In 1981, CAIW expanded its mandate, through the Insurance Information Campaign, to include educating the public about general insurance. Each year, CAIW member associations across Canada promote the positive aspects of the Insurance Industry.
Hello from the Far East of the Western World.
I am very excited to start my term in service as your President.
My mandate is, as I said in my speech at the AGM, T.E.A.M – Together
Every Association Matters. We are going through some historic, and
unprecedented times, but I feel if we continue to come together as “ONE
CAIW/ACFA” Team, we can weather anything and come out better on
the other side of whatever is put in our way.
I want to continue to build on Past President Dawn Patton’s mandate of
Inclusion. By not only building strength in the Local Associations that we
currently have under our Charter, but looking to Provinces that we do not
yet have a Charter in to grow our numbers even further across this great
nation we call home.
The 2020-2021 term will be a busy year for your Officers and Directors.
I’ve included a list of some of our action items that we hope to get done
Please feel free to reach out to anyone on the Board if you have any
We have a very strong and dynamic Board this year, and I know we will
accomplish great things!
If you have not done so already, think about joining the Executive of your
Local Association. You will find the benefits far outweigh the effort.
I will leave you with this quote from Henry Ford,
“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working
together is success.”
Let’s All work together to ensure our Association’s success!
Yours in Fellowship,
Donna J. Payne, CIP, CRM President,
