New “Regulation of Captives” elective
ICCIE is delighted to announce the new Regulation of Captives course that will make its debut in November. The new elective, designed and taught by Jeff Kehler (SC regulator) and Derick White (SRS Captive Manager and long-time VT regulator), will be open for registration this week! Other new ICCIE electives are on the drawing board as well. Watch for future course announcements.



Any Day Now… New ICCIE Website
Yes, it’s been long overdue, but by the time you read this, the launch of the updated ICCIE website will be only weeks or even days away. The freshly-minted site makes finding information about ICCIE easier, streamlines the registration process, and has a crisp, clean look. What you see on the launch date, will not be the end, however, but rather the beginning. We have extended plans over the next 12-18 months for adding advanced functionality to better serve the industry. Keep your eyes open for our launch announcement – then head to the site, take it for a spin, and let us know what you think. Here’s a teaser image:


CCI and Modular Block Purchase info

The new Certificate in Captive Insurance (CCI) announced late last year has had a terrific launch. For those of you who have not explored the new Certificate option — which can be expanded to the Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) — see our website for details. It’s a great way to get a measure of captive expertise and show a commitment to the industry in a relatively short amount of time.

And for individuals and companies who have not yet discovered ICCIE’s new Modular Block Purchase option, consider the significant savings available from purchasing enrollments in three courses for only $1,800. If you have any questions about how the Modular Block Purchase option works, please contact our office for the details.

ACI Scholarships to be Announced at VCIA
ICCIE will again be announcing the winners of two scholarships at the 2016 Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA).  The Distinguished Scholar Award recognizes VCIA’s tremendous financial commitment to ICCIE, and the Harry House Scholarship, made available through the, Housing Authority Insurance Group, offers an ICCIE scholarship to a minority student in an accredited college or university Risk Management Program. The announcement of the scholarship winners will be made at Wednesday’s VCIA General Session.
