Press Release – August 30, 2018


Here are some recent updates from ICCIE, the official education program of the captive insurance industry.


CICA Continues as Leading Financial Supporter of ICCIE

The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) continued its terrific financial support for ICCIE with a contribution of $10,000, presented during the ICCIE Board’s Annual Meeting just prior to the VCIA conference this year. The 2018 donation marks the ninth year CICA has been the largest financial supporter of ICCIE. Our sincere thanks to CICA President Dan Towle and the whole CICA Board for this incredible donation.

CICA President Dan Towle presents ICCIE Executive Director Mitch Cantor and members of the ICCIE Board with a $10,000 supporting contribution from CICA at the ICCIE Board’s Annual Meeting earlier this month.


Liz Steinman Announced as ICCIE Fellow

Liz Steinman, announced as an ICCIE Fellow at the 2018 VCIA conference, receives a plaque from ICCIE Executive Director Mitch Cantor during the General Session.

At the VCIA Annual Conference earlier this month Liz Steinman was awarded the ICCIE Fellow designation.  The new recognition, launched in early 2017, is reserved for those who have earned and maintained the Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) designation, have significant experience working full-time in the captive industry, and have demonstrated a significant commitment to the industry through service.  For details on the Fellow designation and its requirements, see the ICCIE website page:


Harry House and VCIA Distinguished Scholar Awards Announced

ICCIE also announced two annual scholarships at VCIA: the Harry House scholarship, funded by Housing Authority Insurance Group, and the VCIA Distinguished Scholar Award, presented in honor of VCIA’s initial financial support of ICCIE.

The Harry House scholarship is reserved for a minority student in an actuarial or risk management program at an accredited college or university.  The recipient is chosen based on scholastic excellence and good standing in the university community. This year’s recipient was Paulus Ackah from Georgia State University. A single-class scholarship was awarded to Skye Hall from Georgia State University.

VCIA Distinguished Scholarship recipients are selected for achievements in, or commitment to, the captive insurance profession; and for community service. This year’s award went to Andrew Christie, from Aon.  ICCIE Executive Director Mitch Cantor presented Christie with the scholarship award at the VCIA General Session.

ICCIE Announces New CE Guidelines

ICCIE is pleased to announce some changes to our continuing education (CE) guidelines for graduates of our Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) designation. The new schematic will make it more convenient and easier for ACIs to earn more credits while attending approved sessions at captive insurance conferences. In addition, a new payment option will allow for a one-time discounted payment on all the CE credits required per three-year renewal window. Here are the main points of the ACI CE guidelines:

  • ACIs need to complete 12 ICCIE-approved CE credits per three-year window post graduation (no change);
  • There is no longer a limit to CE credits earned from approved conference sessions (new) – previously, only 4 of the 12 credits per renewal window could be earned at conference sessions;
  • Seminars at conferences now have an administrative fee of $100 per webinar (new);
  • For ACI Alumni Network (AAN) members, all online webinars and live-at-conference CE sessions cost $75 (new — reduced from $90);
  • AAN members receive a 50% discount off ONE course per year (new).
  • We now have a prepay subscription available (new): ACIs can prepay for their 12 credits in webinars and webcasts for $1,100 (non-refundable). This can be purchased at any time, and the credits may be used over more than one renewal window.
  • For AAN members purchasing the prepay subscription, annual dues are reduced to $50 per year (instead of $100) (new).

As always, our goal is to serve the captive industry with quality education at a reasonable price. We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new CE changes.
