LGIT's 25th Annual Meeting - December 6, 2012

The Annual Meeting celebrating LGIT’s 25th Anniversary held on Thursday, December 6th at the Navy-Marine Stadium in Annapolis, was a big success. One hundred forty-nine (149) people attended, and the meeting included an inter-active workplace harassment presentation, a humorous presentation, a history of public entity pooling, an awards ceremony, a business meeting, and three Academy for Excellence in Local Governance classes.

The business meeting was highlighted by committee reports from the Underwriting Committee (presented by committee chair Sonny Bloxom), the Finance/Administration Committee (presented by committee chair Susanne Hayman), Risk Management Committee (presented by committee chair Stewart Cumbo) and Claims Committee (presented by committee chair David Carey).

Several of our members won awards this year. The Claims Award was presented to Mayor Kevin Utz of Westminster in recognition of the city’s development of efficient protocols in reporting and investigating claims. Carroll County won the Training Award for consistently taking advantage of LGIT sponsored training classes and seminars. Carroll County Risk Manager Cecilia Devilbiss accepted this award on behalf of the county. Queen Anne’s County won the Risk Management Award in recognition of its diligent followup to LGIT’s survey recommendations. The county conducts daily safety checks in all buildings and routinely observes the habits of its drivers. County Human Resources Director Beverly Churchill accepted the award on behalf of the county.

As most of you know, the Annual Meeting was rescheduled due to Hurricane Sandy, and, even though we lost our featured speaker Anibahn Basu because of a scheduling conflict, our speaker was well received. Michael Fann, the Director of Risk Management for the Tennessee Municipal League, did a wonderful job as a last minute replacement for Mr. Basu. Mr. Fann’s presentation, entitled “Civility in the Workplace”, used Southern/Appalachian Humor to make several good points on how to treat customers and fellow workers alike. He won the Public Risk Manager of the Year for this presentation, which tackles a very difficult subject in a funny, yet insightful way.

After lunch, we were treated to a history lesson given by National League of Cities’ President Bill Heberton. Mr. Heberton reminded the audience of why LGIT and other public pools exist and why they have been so successful. Mr. Heberton did a great job of emphasizing LGIT’s value to its members.

The meeting concluded with four door prizes being presented. Thank you to all of our sponsors (see link below).
