President’s Message

 “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit”

 I recently saw this quote carved on a wall in my office, and attributed to Aristotle. This has always been one of my favorite quotes; however it has been wrongly attributed to Aristotle. These words were actually written by William Duran in “The Story of Philosophy; The Lives and Opinions of the World’s Greatest Philosophers”.

Now that I have ranted on with my need and desire for correction, my purpose for zooming in on this quote was to shed light on the exceptional habit of the members and volunteers of the Southern Loss Association in repeatedly doing good works.

The 2018 SLA Property Continuing Education Seminar proves to once again rise to the standard of Excellence.   The speakers were engaging and pertinent. The event was well attended and the after seminar golf and festivities was indeed the place to be.

As always I would personally like to thank our Executive Vice President, Bill Cartwright, for his leadership in making sure that the seminar when off without a hitch. In addition we would also like to thank our Volunteers for whom without we would get through absolutely nothing. So thanks for all your hard, hard work, Candace Caldwell, Susan Freeman, Kristy Hauger and Jennifer Hagerman.

The SLA also participated in the CPCU I-DAY; in attendance were Carson Lester, Robert Arnold, Candace Caldwell, and myself. This was an opportunity for those attending to gain additional CE credits as well as network and put The Southern Loss Association on display as a vital participant in the local and national property claims industry.

As we continue our efforts to strive for excellence in the Industry, we would like to invite all out to the upcoming 2018 Fall Golf and Tennis outing on Thursday, October 25, 2018 to be held at Chateau Elan Resort, Braselton. Georgia. Be sure to register in time to participate in another grand event.

Thank you all for your continued participation and I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming monthly Luncheon on Thursday September13, 2018
