message from Dave Wine, President & CEO
To Our Valued Partners:
In 2018, MAX completed its eighteenth year since being formed in 2001. That is a significant milestone as 2/3rds of new company start-ups like MAX fail to make it even ten years. We not only have survived but are continuing to grow and expand our services each year. Our annual report for 2018 can be found on our website here. In it you will find lots more information about our past year and the strength of MAX.
Another milestone we just hit is 20,000 members! So what’s special about that number? Well...
It was Jules Verne’s Leagues under the Sea.
It is the size of the initial song list of Apple Music.
It is the number of identified species of fish.
Of course, none of those are directly related to MAX! The number 20,000 is special to MAX because it represents the continued strong growth of MAX and our ability to live out our vision of creating and sustaining wholeness for property, lives and communities. 20,000 represents a significant outreach of wholeness! It represents that many households and even more persons that are now being served by MAX and can expect to be made whole in times of loss. It represents thousands of communities that we can affect in positive ways through our insurance and mutual aid programs. It means 20,000 members are being touched by our MAX agents and MAX team members. We have the opportunity to extend care, wholeness, and support to thousands!
In celebration of this milestone, we are introducing our $20K Charity Giveaway. Will you help us choose the charity? The three options are Feeding America, Mennonite Disaster Service, and Together We Rise. You can learn more about these charities and cast your vote at https://maxinsurance.com/20k. We will email our MAX members as well, but feel free to forward the link and share on your agency's social media sites. The voting lasts two weeks and will end on Friday, May 3. On May 6, we will have a live Facebook announcement on the results. Be sure to follow us so you don't miss it.
Our growth and development is a direct result of our partnership with you, our agents. Thank you for your trust in MAX. As always, please be in touch anytime you have suggestions on ways we can improve our service to you and your clients. We enjoy our partnership with you very much!
