President’s Message

President Lance MorellI am thrilled to be President of the Greater Philadelphia Executive Claims Council for a third term, and I see great things ahead for our organization. During my years with GPECC, the group has experienced a steady, sustained increase in both membership and how we benefit from these connections.

Our Employer Member Power Hours continue to grow in popularity and depth of content. We are grateful to continue this program with the assistance of our center-city host, Golkow Technologies. Golkow will provide webinar capability, which will enable us to include our GPECC members who cannot attend in person. Our Power Hours provide exclusive access for Employer Members to participate in round-table discussions, share best practices and discuss industry developments in a casual and confidential setting.

Our Half-Day Seminars have also seen increased attendance and we are pleased to host knowledgeable industry experts who speak about a variety of topics, providing access to new developments in the industry and a way to discuss and evaluate how we might apply these changes in our own areas of business. GPECC is also proud to offer continuing education credits through attendance at our half-day programs.

Most importantly, our listserv, AskGPECC, has been met with an enthusiastic response and resulted in resounding benefits for members.

I am looking forward to continued development of our programs through the following set of goals:

  • Expand our reach with ongoing Power Hour roundtable discussions and create a unified voice to positively impact legislative and regulatory matters that affect us directly.
  • Drive membership growth beyond the Philadelphia region for better representation of our industry.
  • Continue to develop the benefits to our members, particularly through our new listserv, AskGPECC, and by getting more professionals around the table.

As I take a glance at our membership roster, it becomes evident that we represent an impressive cross-section of the risk management and insurance claims industries and related fields of business in the greater Philadelphia region. These are the conversations you don’t want to miss out on, and we need your input as well.

Join us for another pivotal year!
