Convocation image

Convocation is a special time to honour the hard work and dedication of the Insurance Institute’s newest graduates of the Fellow, Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP) and Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) programs. It is an opportunity for the insurance community to come together and commemorate the professionalism of the industry and its people.

You’re invited to celebrate the graduation of our newest CIPs and FCIPs, and network with old and new colleagues at The Insurance Institute of British Columbia’s Annual Convocation ceremonies. The Vancouver luncheon and Victoria dinner ceremonies are held in November each year.

Graduate Rings
The Institute is proud to announce that it has recently partnered with Jostens to provide our members with CIP and FCIP graduate rings. The CIP and FCIP rings are available to all members of the CIP Society to purchase and are offered in a variety of metals including gold, silver, and lustrium, in English or French, and in two styles:
• the Edgemont for men
• the Shaughnessy signet for women.

If you are a CIP or an FCIP and would like to purchase a ring, please call Paul Robinson of Jostens at (647) 409-7285 or e-mail him at for further details.
