Two Years at the Helm Flies By

December 2017 President's Message

By Gemma Houser, 2017 President

The last 2 years have flown by and I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported me as the President of EBCA. I couldn’t have done it without the amazing board members who have helped me so much. We have put on some amazing events and had some great speakers.

The board for EBCA puts in so much time and effort to make all of these things possible. I have really enjoyed my time as President and I look forward to handing the baton to the wonderful Jennifer Pinney. She is going to do great things with our association and I will be staying on the board to help her in anyway I can.
We had a great turn out for our 2nd annual bowling tournament November 8th. We raised over $800 to benefit victims of the North Bay fires. Jennifer, as always, put on another fun event. I loved how competitive everyone got.
Our Charity Holiday Luncheon is coming up on December 13th. I love the holidays, and this luncheon is a great opportunity for EBCA to give back. Money raised from events during the year goes to help support the Bay Area Crisis Nursery, Shelter Inc. and Children’s Hospital Oakland. I look forward to seeing you there. Please check the website and newsletter for more information on upcoming events.
Our Membership Drive for 2018 has officially begun! We are offering an Early Bird discount for individual as well as corporate memberships for calendar year 2018. We are also continuing with the optional-free membership to adjusters, with a suggested donation of just $10 that will go toward the EBCA Charitable Fund.
Our association depends on our members so please make sure to renew/join now. You can go to our website to become a member right now, or feel free to contact our Membership chair Lynna Harrison or call her at (925) 785-7021 for more information.
As always, I encourage you to bring new people to our meetings, too. Your clients and associates will no doubt appreciate the invitation.
Please do not forget to respond to our Evite, its simple to purchase your lunch now on-line at
Thank you all for your ongoing support. I look forward to seeing you at our December luncheon.
