Dear MCA Members:
Our first fiscal year meeting was held on September 4, 2019 at Judy's Place in Mobile Alabama. The meeting was called to order by our association president Joe Morris. Joe welcomed our guest speaker and members to this occasion. Joe reminded everyone that membership fees are due this month and asked everyone to complete a membership application if you have not done so. He also announced October 1, 2019 meeting will be held at Judy’s Place with guest speaker will be Sherriff Sam Cochran with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department.
We are considering January 2020 as adjuster appreciation monthly meeting. During this meeting we will have a three-hour ethics course for adjuster prior to the meeting and will have Ryan Barkdull with Pilot Catastrophe as quest speaker. Ryan will be presenting Xactimate X1 new estimating program.
We are putting together a hurricane prep day for adjusters on June 1, 2020, during the event, we would like to have FEMA GA’s speak to the group along with company offering CEU’s to adjusters. We will have a company representative available for adjusters to have their laptops hard drives cleaned and ready for storm season.
Joe further stated if you have any suggestions of any speakers for our upcoming meetings, please notify Joe or any board member. Joe then announced our guest speaker, Judge Patterson.
Judge Patterson spoke on an array of great informative topics. Judge was elated to see the array of our members' occupation titles that tied in our association. He spoke on the rules we face in society, people banding together to protect each other, deriving to a system to address grievance, in addition to addressing and resolving grievance. Judge Patterson further discussed proper funding with legislation and the constant backlog of trials that have been pushed back due to lack of funding. He also spoke on previous presidency candidates being very different in today’s presidency candidates and elections. He further discussed civil case backlogs due to no funding and discussed our economy and politics in the upcoming 2020 election. He touched on important topics regarding the supreme court and the great depression, and the constitution. He lastly spoke about getting out and advocate for right and wrong as well as the opioid drug abuse in today's society and legislation tacts.
