The Nowell Agency to Participate in MPMCSA Convention 2016

The Mississippi Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association (MPMCSA) will be holding its 2016 convention at the Peridio Beach Resort in Orange Beach, Alabama from July 28th to July 30th. As a member, The Nowell Agency will also be attending the convention. Two senior executives, Brad Britt and Stennis Jones from our team will be available to counsel convenience store owners and petroleum marketing businesses about the proper insurance coverage and risk management techniques suitable for these industries.

The Mississippi Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association is a non-profit, statewide trade association representing the petroleum and food industries. The association aims towards uniting petroleum marketers and convenience store operators in order to effectively further their common business interests. Members of this association contribute significantly to Mississippi’s economy by supplying petroleum products to our armed forces, municipalities, mass transit and thousands of farmers and businesses across the state. The organization also has over 160 associate member companies who supply goods and services to the industry. In an ongoing effort to stay abreast of changes and developments in the industry, the MPMCSA offers a host of new programs for members helping them meet the many challenges of petroleum marketing and convenience store operations. The 2016 Convention in Alabama is among the range of programs organized throughout the year.
