President’s Message

“SPRING is a time to find out where you are, who you are, and move toward where you are going.” Penelope Trunk – American Businesswomen, author, and blogger.

Our weather lately has been a little crazy, but Spring is right around the corner. For those of you that don’t rely solely on your electronic devices – don’t forget to change your clocks this weekend! Longer days somehow make us feel like we can get more done – and nothing is different with the Southern Loss Association. Your Board has been very busy with many moving parts to continue to provide quality Continuing Education sessions and are working to provide more exciting events to attend as well.

We enjoyed seeing everyone at our last luncheon. Although mold is not the ideal topic during lunch, it is always a pleasure to have Young and Associate’s Dr. Dan share his knowledge with us! In all seriousness, we are thankful to have a co-author of a portion of the IICRC standards speak during February’s luncheon. As adjusters, we need to better understand the science behind drying out water-damaged buildings – to not only reduce un-needed equipment, but also to recommend more if it will achieve a more desirable result. Many thanks to his firm for their February sponsorship as well.

We can confirm that we will have some updates to the SLA website this month. We are working to generate a central location for all of our industry events. The website design has begun and when it is complete, we will begin posting other local events on our calendar to 1) cross promote our other local organizations (2) to aide in our planning efforts for our own events and (3) to create a product that we can all use to know what local education and networking opportunities are available.

As a reminder, we will not have a luncheon next month as the 2017 Larry Hart Memorial Spring Golf and Tennis Outing will be held at Chateau Elan Golf Club on Thursday, April 20, 2017. If you have not already done so, get your teams registered so you don’t miss out and be sure to contact us for available sponsorships before the best ones are gone!

Kind Regards,

Robbie Maples
