AIM’s Board of Directors had a great time at the Alabama State Bar’s annual meeting held at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama. We always appreciate the opportunity to connect with our insureds and friends in the Bar.
Understanding how busy attorneys stay, especially during the summer travel months, we took advantage of our all being together and used the opportunity to fellowship and discuss our plans for the remaining months of the year.
The Bench & Bar Luncheon Featuring Football Legend Archie Manning
It was an honor for AIM to sponsor the Bench & Bar Luncheon, featuring Archie Manning. AIM director and Mobile Bar Association president-elect Raymond Bell, seen here, had the pleasure of introducing Mr. Manning. Alabama State Bar President Gibson Vance is also shown here with the football legend. Archie shared his thoughts about his family, his experience with the NFL, his community involvement, and the importance of mental wellness.
The Local Advisory Council
AIM’s Board of Directors officially launched its Local Advisory Council with the appointment of 13 insureds to represent us in their Alabama districts. Local Advisory Council members will each serve a three-year term as ambassadors for AIM. The intention is to establish local contact that expands and enhances the AIM brand to potential insureds and strengthens relationships with existing insureds. We begin spotlighting our Local Advisory Council members in August.
Meeting of Members
As always, AIM held its Annual Meeting of Members at the ASB meeting. The members elected J. Mark Debro as AIM’s newest board member to fill the vacancy in the Class of 2024 due to the death of Tennent Lee, and re-elected Claire Alexander Black, Lee R. Benton, Lee H. Copeland, and Walter E. McGowan as directors for the Class of 2026.
Resolution in Memory of Tennent Lee
The Board of Directors passed a resolution in loving memory of longtime board member Tennent Lee, who passed away on March 19, 2023, leaving a legacy of service and wisdom. Tennent chaired our claims committee for nearly 35 years.
