President’s Message

Dear Members,

I hope all of you enjoyed the Golf and Cornhole outing as much as I did – weather was perfect, sponsors were friendly, welcoming, swag was on point and games of chance were a nice distraction from golf, which can often be frustrating, especially the way I play.

Aside from a few scoring errors, the day proved to be a successful venture. My message all year has been “let’s make the Property claims world a better place to work” and based on the feedback I received at dinner everyone had a great day. When speaking to one of the participants who commented that we will never win this outing, I replied, sure, but how often do you get to spend 8-10 hours with your friends, clients, co-workers, and smile all day long.

The charity I choose was V-Foundation for Cancer Research – founded by Jim Valvano, a college basketball coach and announcer, who passed away, and ESPN. They hold a fund-raising week every year and if you have not seen his speech from the ESPY awards, please look for it and watch it – it’s around 12 minutes long and it will change your life.

As my term as President comes to end I hope to see all of you at our November and Holiday Luncheon. We have had a great year and would love to pack the house with my last two events.

Participation in the SLA has truly been a wonderful experience for me and want to thank all of you for the support and kind words.

Have a great month and thanks for reading!

Your President,
Joseph Amatulli
