On Wednesday March 20, we held our CMSA Northern Region chapter meeting at historic Hotel Mac Restaurant in Point Richmond, California. Our amazing associate members hosted our cocktail mixer. We want to give a special thanks to J & S Paper, Champion Risk & Insurance Services, Victory Packaging, New Haven Moving Equipment, Paul Hanson Partners and Conor J. Dale, Attorney for hosting the cocktail hour.
We enjoyed a lovely Italian food buffet dinner with amazing creme brûlée dessert. Everyone was happy with the restaurant’s offerings. Hotel Mac Restaurant is a great choice for business meetings and they have live music in their “Happy Hour” We highly recommend this venue for their freeway access, historic building and charming architecture.
We thank every single one of the associate members who spend much of their time and energy driving or flying to be at each of the local chapters events. You know, as a busy licensed commercial or household goods mover how difficult it can be to make time to attend a chapter meeting! Imagine working a schedule that keeps you in touch with all 12 chapters!
We are very thankful that our association has a variety of associate members, anything from paper, boxes, dollies, insurance products, trucks, fuel cards and attorneys! You can find reliable vendors to help you with your moving business needs.
We played a little guessing game with our vendors and discovered some impressive facts about them. For example Matt Hastings of New Haven Moving Equipment loves to hike. Tom Verhauz of Robinson Oil was part of University of Arkansas swimming team. John Kay of Victory Packaging is a former professional skier. Mark Hildreth of New Haven Moving Equipment loves to dance. Casey Myers of Champion Risk and Insurance Services L.P. played basketball in high school and won a state title. Dustin Ullmer of J & S Paper loves to play video games. Our most recent associate vendor, Conor J. Dale of Jackson Lewis worked in the White House as an intern. Our associate vendors are amazing people and we really want to thank them for always supporting our Northern Region chapter meeting and events.
With that, we hope to see you at the CMSA Convention in San Diego!
