ILMA Compoundings October 2016 - 7

FROM THE PRESIDENT

What I Didn't Know About
ILMA Five Years Ago
Frank H. Hamilton III

F

ive years ago, I was a regular ILMA meeting
attendee, just like many of you. I attended one
or two meetings a year, had fun, networked
with vendors, suppliers, consultants
and competitors. The meetings
were productive and enjoyable.
And then there was a change in my
perspective. I was invited to join the Board, and
it has been a quick, enlightening four years.
So, as I conclude my final days as the ILMA
president and prepare to pass the gavel to
our next president, Beth Ann Jones, I spent
a little time reflecting on what I didn't know about
ILMA five short years ago.
I did not know how committed and hardworking the
ILMA staff are. Holly, Martha, Brenda, Amber, Tim,
Margaret and Meg are a wonderful team. The work
that goes into deciding where our Annual Meeting
and Management Forum will be four years from
now is impressive. It is not an easy task. The
effort put forth by each of the staff
to orchestrate these two meetings
every year, manage our Scholarship
Foundation program, continually
develop programs and innovate with
fresh, compelling ideas and technology is
outstanding.
I did not know the level of patience
required to move the regulatory agenda in
Washington in our direction. It takes building
and strengthening partnerships, tremendous
dedication and patience to move the needle in a
positive direction.

I did not know that even though our membership is very
diverse in terms of products, markets, size of operations,
geography served and markets served members remain
very collegial toward one another. At meetings,
there is a palpable sense of camaraderie that keeps
everyone returning year after year.
I did not know how much effort the Board members
and the Executive Committee members
put forth in running our successful
association. They believe so strongly in
this organization that even with demanding
full-time executive positions, they remain
interested and engaged in moving ILMA
forward. And while there is healthy debate,
of course, between board and staff on issues
that require attention and action, at the end of
the day we are all pulling in the same direction.
As I wrap up my presidency, I want to say thanks
to my fellow Board members, our Executive
Committee, our staff and our members. I did
not know then, but see so clearly now,
that because of them and our growing
membership, excellent liquidity position and
vibrant membership participation ILMA is the
envy of almost all other associations.
We are all part of this extraordinary mix, and I'm proud
to have served as president of this exceptional
organization.

Hamilton is president of South Atlantic Services Inc. and
current president of ILMA. He may be reached at 910-7633496 ext. 118 or fhamilton@south-atlantic-svcs.com.

I did not know how skillful and committed
our legal counsel, Jeff Leiter, is to ILMA.
Jeff has been with us for over 30 years
and is the bearer of the history and
institutional thread of knowledge that
runs through everything we do.
