Greater Kansas City Claims Association was founded in January of 2012.
The organization was originally the Northeast Chapter of the Kansas
Claims Association, which was around for decades in Kansas, but was
disbanded in 2009 across the state.
George Waldron, then of Crawford
& Company, along with Sonya Drake of Haren Laughlin Restoration banded together to lead a rejuvenation of the NE Chapter of the KCA by
moving it from Topeka to Overland Park.
From that humble beginning of a
dozen members to a few dozen in 2011, the Board made the decision to
remove its association with the completely disbanded KCA and formally
changed its name to the Greater Kansas City Claims Association, reaching
across the state line into Missouri for the first time.
