Lawyers Mutual Launches its Eastern Carolina Community Board

CARY, NC - In light of the success of its Charlotte Area Community Board, launched in early 2012, Lawyers Mutual has formed a second community board comprised of 11 attorneys with practices throughout the eastern part of North Carolina.  The primary mission of the Eastern Carolina Community Board is to develop ambassadors and educators for Lawyers Mutual and to strengthen local ties and relationships.

“We are very excited about the launch of our second community board and the attorneys who have agreed to serve,” says Dan Zureich, President of Lawyers Mutual.  “Our community board program is essential to ensuring that Lawyers Mutual continues to stay connected with our insured attorneys so that we can continue to meet their needs.”

Ken McAllister, Chairman of Lawyers Mutual Board of Directors says, “The creation of a regional community Board of Advisors in eastern North Carolina is a significant step forward for Lawyers Mutual.  This new regional board joins the greater Charlotte region in providing a formal community-based presence to better serve and meet the needs of all of our insureds.  Lawyers Mutual will continue to develop other regional boards throughout the State, and look to each of these boards as valued advisors who enhance the overall soundness, diversity and profitability of our Company.”

The first meeting of the Eastern Carolina Community Board will be held on February 28 in New Bern, North Carolina.
