Thanks to our Leaders & Coordinators who came out to our 2019 kick-off meeting. Nearly 40 company representatives attended the meeting at Charlotte Rescue Mission’s (CRM’s) uptown campus to hear about plans for the year, have lunch and tour the soon-to-be-completed Community Matters Cafe.

Highlights of the meeting included a run-down of upcoming events by AmWINS’s Josh Ammons, who – along with Palmer & Cay’s Mike Murray and AIG’s Kristen Nicholls – took over as co-chairs of the steering committee this year.

CRM President & CEO Tony Marciano provided an overview of the organization’s mission, Community Relations Coordinator Christy Baker described volunteer opportunities and Vice President & COO Kristin Kelly Blinson gave an update on the cafe progress.

The cafe chefs also prepared an incredible lunch for attendees, making us even more eager for the cafe to open.

Special kudos go to the Zenith Insurance Company’s Michelle Bissinger for coordinating the meeting and to Dan Pliszka for taking photos.
