CII celebrates 125th anniversary

In 2022, the Chartered Insurance Institute will mark the 125th anniversary of local institutes coming together to form the federation that would evolve into the professional body of today. The CII has published a special edition of The Journal and a CII Radio podcast exploring the power of that collaboration in 1897.

Peter Blanc (pictured), president of the CII, said: “The CII’s history demonstrates the progress that can be achieved by the coming together of our committed network of volunteers via the Local Institutes and Societies, in order to raise public trust in the profession and support the development of skills, knowledge and sharing of expertise.

“At the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Federation, G.K. Greening, then President of the Chartered Insurance Institute, described our institution as still having growing pains. I applaud our local institutes for their continued effort and commitment to ensuring we evolve how we deliver the benefits members held dear more than a century ago to best meet the needs of today’s professionals.”
