Past: A History of Success

CICA was formed in 1972 to foster and support the development of captive insurance companies around the globe. Through the years, CICA has evolved along with the industry to offer alternative risk professionals the latest, most up-to-date viewpoints on captive insurance, and more recently, risk retention groups.

Present: Playing a Vital Role in the Industry

CICA has emerged as an advocate around the world, a valuable connection to the captive industry and the resource for captive development. CICA continues to leverage its domicile neutral status to forge collaborative relationships and a stronger, more impactful voice for the captive industry.

As a leader in the industry, CICA has also taken on the responsibility of recognizing other leaders and visionaries. The CICA Distinguished Service Award, the industry's highest honor, was created in 2006 to recognize individuals or organizations who have made significant contributions to advancing the captive insurance industry. And in 2007, the CICA Outstanding Captive Award was awarded for the first time, recognizing creative uses of a captive or risk retention group.

Future: Serving Our Members and Our Industry

CICA's expanding membership is a tribute to its growing number of educational offerings and its efforts to keep top professionals informed of the latest developments or challenges in the industry. The CICA International Conference and the CICA Webinar Series have emerged as two premier education and events. CICA's industry resources and publications provide valuable information to beginners and well-established members of the captive industry. 

The creation of the Captive Association Leadership Council, which is comprised of all captive domicile associations, CICA and related industry associations, will regularly discuss issues that impact the entire industry (on shore, off shore, international) and the development of industry-wide positions.
