About the CPCU Society

Committed to Advancing Your Career
The Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters (CPCU) Society is a community of credentialed property and casualty insurance professionals who promote excellence through ethical behavior and continuing education.

The Society's more than 22,000 members hold the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation, which requires passing rigorous undergraduate- and graduate-level examinations, meeting experience requirements, and agreeing to be bound by a strict code of professional ethics.

Founded in 1944, the CPCU Society's mission statement says:

“The CPCU Society (Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters) is dedicated to meeting the career development needs of a diverse membership of professionals who have earned or aspired to earn the CPCU designation, their employers and other industry stakeholders so that they may serve others in a competent and ethical manner.”

The CPCU Society offers tremendous opportunities that will help you propel your career to new heights. It also works hard to spread the message about the value of the CPCU designation to the industry and the public. Here are just a few of the benefits of membership:

  • Continuing Education Opportunities — Sharpen your skills with seminars, workshops, and symposia.
  • Professional Development Programs — Enrich your career with leadership training, public speaking opportunities, courses from our prestigious CPCU Society Center for Leadership, and more.

  • Valuable Job Bank — Take advantage of our CPCU Society Job Network to post your résumé, build a personal career profile, and review job openings. This is also a critical resource for insurance industry employers and recruiters.
