Atlanta, GA – Amy E. Loggins, assistant vice president and corporate counsel for Crawford & Company, recently was appointed as a member of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Law & Judiciary Committee.
The committee monitors Georgia’s judiciary and laws and regulations affecting business in the state to ensure a competitive economic climate for businesses and individuals. Some of its work includes efforts to protect and enhance the fairness of the state’s judicial system, protect private property rights and create a statewide business court network that specializes in hearing business disputes. A number of major businesses and law firms, including The Coca-Cola Company, Delta Airlines, Georgia Power and UPS, are represented on the committee.
“Amy has effectively guided employment law issues for our global company for a number of years and also has been very active in both state and national organizations,” said Allen W. Nelson, general counsel and chief administrative officer for Crawford. “The Georgia Chamber is gaining a skilled new committee member who I’m sure will make a great contribution to the group. I congratulate her on this appointment.”
Loggins serves as vice president for the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) – Georgia chapter and in a leadership role on the ACC’s Employment and Labor Law Committee. In addition to community volunteer work, she is a pro-bono mediator for the EEOC and represents Crawford on the Labor Relations committee of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. She speaks frequently on employment law issues at legal industry conferences and has contributed to the ACC Docket, the law journal for the ACC.
In 2010, Loggins was presented with the Jonathan A. Silber Outstanding Committee Member of the Year Award from the ACC for individual excellence, leadership and major contributions made by a member of an ACC committee. The ACC is the world’s largest organization of in-house counsel, with more than 26,500 members in 75 countries.
Loggins joined Crawford in 2004 after serving as a trial attorney with the EEOC in Atlanta and an associate at the law firm of Seacrest, Karesh, Tate & Bicknese, also in Atlanta. She received her law degree from the University of Georgia School of Law and a bachelor of science degree with honors from the University of Georgia.
