The Minority Limousine Operators of America (MLOA) continued their weekly meeting series on Wednesday, June 24, with a Zoom conference for their membership and guests. More than 25 operators took part, including CD Editor Rob Smentek.

Alternative Claims Management

MLOA President Darrell Anderson of A-National Limousine kicked off the meeting by welcoming new members Winston Cooper of Division One Consultant Services and Rodney Clark of Ace High Executive Transportation. Guest speaker Sean DeAvila of Alternative Claims Management (ACM) then took the reins of the video conference for a presentation called Capturing Revenue During a Pandemic. He and his colleagues Mike Towers and Tim Green shared how ACM can provide operators with money when fleet vehicles are out of service due to no fault circumstances. DeAvila shared that ACM’s coverage not only applies to loss of revenue due to accidents where the chauffeur is not at fault, but also sanitation fees, which is timely during the current COVID crisis.


After the ACM presentation, the MLOA Board discussed the possibility of an association summit to be held in Atlanta in early October. Members were enthusiastic about the idea, with several confirming their involvement on the spot. However, the Board made it clear that safety is paramount, and they will only move forward if it is safe to travel.

Before the meeting was adjourned, the membership committee wanted to make everyone aware that 2020 MLOA membership is only $100 until June 30, which includes full access to all MLOA resources and regular conference calls.

The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, July 8 at 1 PM ET, and will cover the new rules regarding PPP forgiveness with guest Matt Daus of Windels Marx.
