The Captive Insurance Companies Association will be holding its Fall Forum from October 10 to 13 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona. The Fall Forum will be the first non-regional event to be held with in-person attendance since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in March of 2020.

The 2020 CICA International Conference, initially planned for March 2020, was one of the first cancellations of the pandemic. Now, a year and a half later, CICA is looking forward to holding an in-person event again.

Although a spike in coronavirus cases from the Delta Variant has caused some concern over in-person activities, CICA President Dan Towle sent along comments to the Risk Retention Reporter on August 26, 2021, on the steps CICA is taking to ensure a safe and successful Fall Forum.

“We are hearing that our members are eager to get back to in-person meetings and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive for our Fall Forum. CICA is closely monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 and the Delta variant,” said Towle. “As a community of leaders in risk management and captive insurance, CICA is encouraging everyone to do their part to help make this the safest event possible by getting vaccinated prior to attending the meeting if you have not already done so. We realize vaccination is a personal choice. It’s also a choice each of us can make to help keep ourselves and our captive colleagues healthy and ready to meet and conduct business.”
