Since inception, SAPIC's Members meet once a year at different venues in order to have their Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is usually hosted by one of its Members in Latin America or even at locations such as Bristol, London and Amsterdam in opportunity of the IGP&I Correspondents’ Conferences.
In 2015, the AGM took place in London following an invitation from the UK Club. In May 2019 SAPIC's members
returned to London following similar invitation from Steamship
Mutual who kindly hosted the AGM.
The meeting took place on May 21st morning hours at SSM's premises. It was followed in the afternoon by a fruitful and friendly meeting with the attendance of correspondents managers of the different Clubs within the IG. Different topics were discussed in order to strengthen the role of the Correspondents in the interest of the Clubs and their Membership, which are mainly based in two old values - trust and loyalty – which have supported the relationship of the Clubs and its correspondents since the early days of the P&I underwriters.
At the end of the meeting some Correspondent's Managers, who have recently retired or are due to retire, were recognised by SAPIC for their support and friendship to Correspondents: Mr. Charles Elmer (UK Club); Mr Charles Gornell (American Club); Mr. James Cross (Standard Club) and Mr Nick Tonge (NEPIA.)
The day was crowned with a wine reception hosted by SAPIC at Leadenhall Market, which was attended by a significant number of the Clubs’ claim handlers and representatives of other companies associated to the marine business. The function provided for an excellent opportunity to meet new people and to share a warm time with friends in a cordial environment.
