Hackett, CICA’s NEXTGEN Task Force Chair, will bring voice of young professionals to CICA Board.

MINNEAPOLIS ─ Erin Hackett, CPA, ACI, senior audit manager, Crowe, has been appointed to a new, position on the Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) Board of Directors.  Hackett, who chairs CICA’s NEXTGen Young and New Professional’s Task Force, was appointed to a one-year term.

“As part of launching the NEXTGen program the CICA board discussed ways that we could give the task force the support and resources they need to succeed,” explained CICA President Dan Towle.  “We believe having a designated young professional member on the board will be beneficial. The task force will have direct access to share their ideas with CICA leaders and it provides a young professional with exposure to governance and other career-enhancing leadership skills,” Towle added.

CICA’s NEXTGen Task Force began meeting several months ago to develop strategies and recommendations for CICA to foster networking and provide education and professional development opportunities for new and young professionals to help support their career development.

Hackett, who brings 10 years of audit experience with commercial insurers, risk retention groups, and more, eagerly welcomes this new opportunity.  “I couldn’t be more excited to join the CICA board of directors. Giving me the opportunity to join this impressive group shows CICA’s commitment to developing the next generation of captive professionals and leaders,” she said. Hackett’s term will officially begin with the March 2020 board meeting.
