Annual Meeting Sponsor Spotlights - Golf Sponsorships

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Thursday, September 8, 2016

With the Annual Meeting right around the corner, IMA-NA would like to take the opportunity to recognize the four sponsors for the Golf Tournament this year. Our sponsors all come from the Associate Member Section and we'd like to take the time to thank them for their sponsorships as well as for their contributions to the IMA-NA as an Association. 

The Law Office of Adele L. Abrams PC, is sponsoring the "Closest to the Pin" prize for our golf outing. The Law Office of Adele L. Abrams PC is a full service law firm, focusing on occupational and mine safety and health, employment, and environmental law. Adele and her team are no strangers to IMA-NA membership, regularly offering their legal expertise in the form of webinars and presentations at our Technology Workshop.  With offices in Maryland, West Virginia, and Colorado the team offers both consulting and legal services related to OSHA, MSHA, and the EPA. Adele herself, is not only an active member at IMA-NA but she formerly acted as the Chair for the Associate Member Section. Working with regulatory bodies, particularly the enforcement branches, is a reality of doing business but the process is often both confusing and time consuming.  Luckily IMA-NA can count on Associate members, like Adele and her team, to provide expertise and representation to simplify the processes. 

Trimac Transportation is sponsoring the "Longest Drive" prize for the golf. Trimac provides bulk transportation, logistics, and related transportation services to meet the North American requirements of their customers. With a stress on delivering valuable service to their customers in a safe way, in 2016 Trimac was nominated as one of the best fleets to drive for by the Truckload Carriers Association. Since its founding in 1945, Trimac Transportation has become one of the largest bulk carriers in North America through internal growth and strategic acquisitions. An IMA-NA member since 2014, Galen Murphy has been an active participant in our meetings and community.  Logistics remain an important component to the ability for our Producer members to continue their operations successfully, and IMA-NA is happy to provide a space where all our members are able to interact and build stronger working relationships.

Our "Longest Putt" golf prize is being sponsored by Hapman. An Associate Member since 2014, Hapman is a global manufacturer of standard and custom bulk material handling equipment, and complete material handling systems. The team at Hapman works collaboratively with their customers to ensure the products and solutions are custom tailored to handle each need. Since its inception 70 years ago, Hapman's attention to detail and responsiveness to clients has allowed the company to expand globally and provide bulk material handling equipment for 2,600 distinct types of materials. Hapman has participated not only at IMA-NA meetings but has presented both webinars and topics during the Technology Workshop. 

Our final golf prize, "the Lowest Team Score" is being sponsored by J & M Tank Lines Inc. J & M is a family owned trucking company that has been in business for over 60 years. They have terminals located in Alabama, Georgia, and Texas, operate 550 pneumatic tanks, 50 food grade tanks and 25 flat beds; all of which makes transportation in the southeast as efficient as possible. J & M Tank Lines prides itself on the culture of safety and health for their employees, taking a proactive approach to ensuring their fleet of drivers are able to provide dependable service in safe conditions. The company is active in their local community as well as the trucking community through their involvement with associations. As with the other logistics service providers represented at IMA-NA, J & M provides valuable insight and expertise to our association and community.
