Once the regional committee members were decided, 3 people were nominated from each region to be part of the statewide committee. A.C. “Carroll” Proctor Jr. and Howard Batchelor were nominated from the GCIA for the statewide committee.
According to Batchelor, the committees will meet 2–3 times per year, and have conference calls another 2–3 times per year in the hopes of bringing issues and potential solutions in the Georgia collision industry to Commissioner Hudgens’ attention.
The regional meetings will be public while the statewide meetings will be members only.
“Now we’re just really waiting for these committees to meet,” said Batchelor. The committees will focus on automotive industry issues that would concern the Insurance Commissioner’s office.
The Property and Casualty Advisory Committee also met on January 25 for their first discussion meeting.
