About This Chapter

The Great Smoky Mountains is a community of credentialed property and casualty insurance professionals who promote excellence through ethical behavior and continuing education.

Our 60+ members hold the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU®) designation, which is conferred by The Institutes and requires passing rigorous undergraduate- and graduate-level exams, meeting an experience requirement, and agreeing to be bound by a strict code of professional ethics. We also welcome CPCU candidates that have passed 2 or more exams.

Our chapter has quarterly meetings with a focus on education, networking, and fun. The meetings vary in day, time, and location and cover a wide range of topics.  We also have social events throughout the year to stay connected between our regularly scheduled meetings.

Mission Statement: The GSM Chapter is committed to the development and continuing education of the human resources available in the East Tennessee area; to be the leading or-ganization in the area for professionalism and integrity in the insurance industry; to give back to the community what we take from it in terms of the benefits it pro-vides us; and to serve our current members and recruit new CPCU candidates.
