PHOTOGRAPHY CAROLE B. EVES 4 | CAA MAGAZINE a message from CAA . @CAASCO 1-800-268-3750 In keeping up to date with the global crisis and its impact on our more than 2.4 million Members, I know that many of you and your families have been adversely affected. This is at the forefront of my mind as we think about how CAA can help. The purpose of CAA, a not- for-profit organization, is to keep our Members safe and to look for ways to continually give back to our communities and our Members. In most households, auto insurance premiums are almost always one of the most expensive items. In previous issues of the magazine, I've wrien about our community actions and the $65 million that we gave back directly to our insurance customers in 2020. We reduced rates dramatically — more than any other insurance company — because we recognized that people's driving paerns had changed. As I am writing this, I am pleased to add that for 2021, we are giving back another $65 million to insurance customers, totalling over $130 million in less than two years. These actions have raised eyebrows in the industry, but they are the right thing to do. At CAA, our focus is on protecting our Members within all of our organizations across Canada and giving back at every opportunity. Our concern is for our Members, Associates and partners — not the boom line. I know the good days will be back when we can all return to doing what we love. Until then, CAA will always look to help in any small way we can to make life a lile easier. With my deepest appreciation to you for being a Member of CAA, I wish you and your family safety and good health. Very best, Jay Woo President and CEO CAA Club Group W ITH GOOD WEATHER UPON US, the writers and contributors of this issue have put together some useful content to help you plan for the days when we can travel and spend time together again. Our Associates — who are all still working with us — look forward to the days when we can welcome you back to plan your dream trip. In the meantime, we love hearing from all of our Members. Your feedback helps us continue to do beer and guides our thinking and planning to keep CAA relevant today and into the future.
