President’s Message

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning” – Benjamin Franklin

We had a fantastic turnout for our January luncheon where we learned about the most common financial motives for potential arson claim. A big thank you for our speaker and sponsor, Michael Shryock of RGL Forensics.

For those of you who could not make it, we hope to see you at the next meeting. Our Board and our volunteers are continuously working to coordinate quality continuing education classes as well as organizing more opportunities to network with your industry peers. Be sure to check the SLA website regularly as we will be updating our calendar with industry related events very soon.

We are excited about this year within SLA as our team is working on a new “student initiative” to help drive more young folks to the claims sector of the business. This will not only give the younger generation an opportunity to acclimate to the industry, but it will also give our local insurance market a recruiting opportunity. We will provide more information as we develop this effort. Other SLA business includes strengthening our social network presence and teaming up with other organizations to cross-promote and add more networking opportunities.

The sign-up for our February luncheon has gone out, so sign up early to ensure you have a spot! Please be sure to drop a note to if you cannot make it to an event you have signed up for. This enables us to get a proper headcount for the venue and also allows others to sign up in your place.

The 2017 Larry Hart Memorial Spring Golf and Tennis Outing will be held at Chateau Elan Golf Club on Thursday, April 20, 2017. Registration is now open and this event always sells out so get your sponsorships in and your teams together for this prestigious event!

As a reminder, it is a new year which means your 2017 dues need to be paid. We now have the ability to take credit cards online or in person at any of our events, so it is very easy to take off of your to-do lists. Get your dues current, so you don’t miss out on our member only events!

If you would like to become a speaker or sponsor at one of our events, please reach out to me, a Board member, or any of our volunteers. We are always looking for fresh, new articles for our newsletter. This is a great way to showcase your expertise and reach out to others in our industry.

We look forward to seeing all of you soon!

Kind Regards,

Robbie Maples
