New Professional Development Track designed to address “The Challenge of Change” to help captive insurance professionals hone skills for success.

MINNEAPOLIS ─ The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) today announced the call for presentations for the 2018 CICA International Conference “The Challenge of Change” which includes a new Professional Development Track. The conference is scheduled for March 11-13, 2018 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“As I meet with CICA members and industry professionals I hear consistently about the daily challenges they are facing. Whether it’s dealing with changes from technology and regulatory issues or new ways of educating internal constituents and captive boards about the benefits that captive insurance can provide,” said CICA President, Dan Towle.

CICA’s domicile neutral status creates a unique and engaging environment for a conference of over 500 captive insurance representatives and service providers from around the world, including approximately 100 first time attendees, to gather for insightful and productive education and networking opportunities.

“This year’s conference theme: The Challenge of Change covers a broad spectrum of issues affecting all segments of the captive industry and provides an ideal platform for CICA to launch some changes of its own. In an effort to better serve the growing needs of the industry, CICA will be launching a new Professional Development Track,” Towle explained. “This new track will provide training on skills captive and risk management professionals need to successfully engage human resources, finance, risk management and executives in developing strategies for optimal uses of captive insurance companies.”

With the call for presentations CICA is asking for the latest captive strategies for addressing today’s external disruptions and challenges, and for use of new technologies and skills today’s captive professionals and service providers need to be successful.

Details on the Call for Presentations can be found on the CICA website.  Submissions are due 5 p.m. CT Wed., Aug. 16.
