President’s Message

By Wayne Taylor, Mozley, Finlayson & Loggins, LLP

Dear Fellows:

I am so proud of the College as we emerge from the pandemic. Our recent Annual Conference in September was an absolute success! Kudos to John Bonnie and Spence Taylor for planning and executing a fantastic program. 

We now get back to our regular schedule. Our next Annual Conference will take place from May 11 to 13, 2022, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Chicago, Illinois. Our Conference Chairs, Laura Hanson and Tracy Saxe, are hard at work planning another incredible program. Presenting at the Conference is a great way to get more actively involved in the very important educational work of the College.

The next Insurance Law Symposium will take place some time in February 2022 in conjunction with Vanderbilt Law School in Nashville. Steve PateBrad Box, and Brandon McWherter are co-chairing the event. We are looking at all available options to hold this symposium in person. Stay tuned for more details. 

The College rose up during the pandemic to utilize available technologies to sponsor numerous Pop-Up webinars. To that end, we have an upcoming program that will be held virtually on January 13, 2022, with “The Use of Extrinsic Evidence to Grant and Deny Defenses,” presented by Fellows Doug Richmond and Jim Bryan. I urge all of you to register for this informative program. Keep checking the College’s website for more Pop-Up webinars that will be added to the calendar.

It is my sincere hope that more of you will get actively involved in the important educational work of the College. If you are not sure how to get more involved, contact any of the College’s officers or Board of Regents members. We have many great programs planned, and I hope you will take advantage of these great opportunities to get involved. I look forward to seeing all of you in February at the Insurance Law Symposium and May at the Annual Conference. 

All my best,
