Southeast Chapter Supports Bert’s Big Adventure

The PLUS Foundation recently donated to the Southeast Chapter Charity, Bert’s Big Adventure. This donation will help them provide a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World for chronically ill children and their families. Following their annual trip, Bert’s Big Adventure provides ongoing support to families and hosts a Reunion Adventure for all their alumni. They also have a Fairy Godparent Volunteer Program made possible with over 70 volunteers who visit the children in the hospital. Bert’s Big Adventure is passionate about helping children and their families and creating a sense of community.

Thank you to the PLUS Foundation for supporting such a great cause!

Southeast Chapter Dives Deep with Education Event

On Tuesday, July 16, the Southeast Chapter held an educational event at the Florida Aquarium. The presentation on emerging insurance exposures was excellent and led to great follow-up questions, which engaged the group in discussions that continued during the reception. The reception was held in the Coral Reef Panoramic Window Room, which gave attendees a close view of the beautiful marine life.

Thank you to all the attendees and to the Chapter! Enjoy the photos and we hope to see you at PLUS event soon.

 

Women’s Leadership Network and Sponsor Appreciation in Atlanta

Wednesday, January 16 was the first Women’s Leadership Network Event held in Atlanta. The luncheon sold out with more than 90 attendees, who were excited to hear from  Elizabeth McCormick, former U.S. Army Black Hawk Pilot. She shared professional development secrets for business success with her stories of overcoming overwhelming obstacles as a helicopter pilot and inspired everyone who attended. After the luncheon and program, attendees were able to participate in the Southeast Chapter Sponsor Appreciation Cocktail Reception, which was also held at the Intercontinental Hotel.
