ANNUAL C?NFERENEC
OF AGENTS AND SUPTS.
M. C. Mutual And Provident Association
Holds First Annual Conference in
South Carolina At Columbia.
; It was truly a representative
gathering of Negro insurance
men and women from every sec
tion of South Carolina, who
with the general ollicers from
the home office of the N. C.
Mutual and Provident Associa
tion of Durham, N. Q.
The meeting was called in
the beautiful new building of
the company, at the N. E. cor
nier of Washington St. and Park
Avenue, Columbia. General
Manager C. C. spaulding m the
chair. Prayer was offered by
Dr. A. M. Moore, which showed
that while the meeting was of
a strictly business nature, still
the management realize that
the first requisite was God's
presence and His blessing.
Mr. J. H. Garner, th9 state
agent for South Carolina, ex
tended a welcome in an address
replete with cordiality and en
couragement. He gave a briei
account of the work in the
State, and during the sessiont
was alive to the needs of thc
company, and at stated times
at the request of the ofliceri
made clear several points tha
had heretofore been difficult t<
the assembled superintendent
and agents, thus making i
possible for all to return ti
their posts with a clear insigh
into the work.
Mr, John Merrick, the found
. er .of the work, was next intrc
duced and was enthusiasticall
received. His address wds a
admirable presentation of th
great amount of splendid wor
accomplished in the first dc
eade. Mr. Merrick is a fin
type of the truly representativ
and progressive Negro, full <
energy himself, he commun
cates the same spirit to thos
with whom he comes in cor
tact. His successful life is
concrete oxample of what ca
be accomplished by due attei
tion to the work in the lan?
He emphasized the irnportam
of every representative of tl
company knowing his woi
thoroughly and being able
present it intelligently and a
curately.
On Friday President Merrit
very eloquently and touchini
ly made his farewell remark
he gave to the conference a p
per bristling with useful hint
so that every agent can go
his field to write a much long
debit. His paper was strictly
business paper, on busine
lines, Among many forcef
epigrams were the following
part:
Modern businoss, bett
human environments."
"Business gives opportuni
for all to work, earn,grow, ai
become somebody.
''Inasmuch as business su
plies the necessitiese of life,
is impossible to have a high
evolved and noble race axce
where there is science of bu:
ness."
/ A few mon of the type
John Merrick in various se
tions of our Southern cou
try would soon put to an ei
all race bai ted and antagonisi
During the first day's sessi
Dr. A. M. Moore, (he secreta
and treasurer and one of t
founders of the company, a
dressed the conference. I
Moore is another object less
of what strict attention to on?
calling can do by way of i
spiration to others, Dr, Moe
although a physician of ma
year's successful /practice
yet a most excellent busine
man and his address to the j
sembled agents was truly
3ound, logical talk on the work.
He spoke especially ofi the
financial condition of the com
pany and of its standing with
the insurance authorities of the
Stace, He gaye an account of
the growth of the company
from a small sick benefit con
cern to a truly great insurance
company, with a mutual reserve
of many thousands, showing
Dr Moore's versatility to a
marked degree was the admira
ble manner which he s. if ted
from financial matters to dis
eases with special reference to
fever?.
On Thursday afternoon Mr.
Spaulding invited the entire
assembly to partake of light
refreshments in the Crescent
Cafe, This Cafe occupies one
of the store rooms in our new
building and is under the man
agement of Mrs. U. S. Shelton.
Before adjournment resolu
tions not only commendatory,
of but complimentary to the
general officers were unani
mously passed, each representa
tive expressing gratification at
the kindness extended. t?o
ended the first annual confer
once for South Carlina.
These "outings" are not only
beneficial to the active work
ers but to the policy-holders, as
all agents will go to their re
spective fields upliftod inspired
and determined to write more
and larger insurance.
