September Meeting Minutes
By Darrenda Plainer

The MCA meeting held their meeting on September 14, 2022 at Judy’s Place, in Mobile, AL., with a total of 28 in attendance and a total of 3 in virtual online attendance. Our guest speaker for our first MCA meeting of the 2022-2023 MCA year was our MCA President, Geoffrey Conrad, Director of Training with Crawford and Company. Geoffrey provided a self-introduction, and introduced the MCA board members. Geoffrey gave great insight of continued growth with MCA and presented an outstanding power point of our MCA purpose and mission, goals, values, and by-laws. He stressed the importance of changing the mindset in the claims industry and working together. His topic for the evening was “Quality is a choice. Choose to make it Better” reiterating on those great words of Ron Kaufman. Geoffrey further discussed adjusters’ ethics, the importance of learning from your claims experience, and being a great advocate for adjusters, getting your customers to a pre-loss condition. Other great and informative topics of discussion from our MCA President how the Mobile Claims Association can assist the adjusters in training and CE credits for the adjusters,
 
Since Geoffrey’s first month in office as MCA President, a little over a month ago, Geoffrey has implemented numerous upcoming events for the association: Golf Tournament - Thursday March 30, 2023. [SIC]
