President's Report

Hello Everyone,

I am excited to get the Claims Association activities up and running for 2020. It is my pleasure to announce the 2020 GKCCA Board as follows:

President - Alex Shaw (ARU)

Vice President - Patrick Kimmell

Secretary - Taylor Connolly (Brown and James Law Firm)

Treasurer - George Waldron (Zipco Contracting)

Social Chair - Allison Greenfield (Knight Nicastro Mackay law firm)

Communication Chair- Nick Verzani (Allstate)

Education Chair- Ryan Swearingen (NEFCO)

Committee Chair- Megan Hathaway (Allstate), Don McNulty (First Call Restoration)

Charity Golf Chair- Glenda Harris (Arrow Fire and Water), Katie Murphy (Service Master DSI).

The fee structure for membership dues will be $200 annually for vendors.  The $200 membership fee includes admittance for two company representatives to the continuing education luncheons that will be held.  No additional fees will be charged for attendance at the luncheons.  A vendor membership includes admittance to any of the social events like the golf outing, Sporting event outing, etc.  Additional fees are sometimes required for the social events depending on the type of event and venue.  Vendor membership fees can be paid now via PayPal using the GKCCA website:  www.gkcca.org.

We are always trying to increase the insurance adjuster/manager involvement in the association.  As such, no membership fees or costs for luncheons will be imposed on the individuals in an insurance adjuster/manager/professional role.

The board has tentatively planned the following events for 2018:

Educational Luncheon on January 16

Social Event on February 21

Educational Luncheon on April 16

Educational Luncheon on May 21

Charity Golf Event on June 18

Social Event in July

Sporting Event outing sometime in September

Educational Luncheon on October 15

Holiday Party in December

Dates are subject to change and members will be notified by email of upcoming events.  Please check the GKCCA website for all upcoming events.  We will do our best to have the educational luncheon events pre-approved for adjuster CE credit.

All invites/RSVP's will be updated on the website and emailed prior to events.  In the meantime, please visit the GKCCA website noted above to update your information and get your dues current.  Also, if you use Facebook or Linkedin, please like the Greater Kansas City Claims Association page.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Alex Shaw - President
