As you know we are still in the midst of the pandemic even with vaccines ramping up, so in the abundance of caution we have gone with virtual presentations for our 2021 Spring Conference.  Dr. Elyssa Del Valle the Chief Medical Officer at Swiss Re has kindly recorded two presentations for us on Liver Disorders and Rheumatology.

On behalf of the Chicago Underwriting Association, we offer our condolences on the passing of John Krinik from On The Risk

On behalf of the Board and Membership, CUA graciously donated to Catherine’s Cupboard in John Krinik’s name which was appreciated by the family

Coming soon – members will be receiving an email regarding our 2021-2022 elections, we are very happy to have some new candidates

Watch your emails for some virtual activities to come this summer along with a notice on our 2021 Fall Conference in October.
