Press Release – September 21, 2017


ICCIE finished the summer with some big updates on the heels of a number of changes we have enacted in the last 18 months. We’re very proud to make the following announcements:


Tina Truax McCuin Announced as ICCIE Fellow

At the Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA) annual conference general session last month ICCIE awarded an ICCIE Fellow designation to Tina Truax McCuin, from TD Wealth Management.

And Some Recent ICCIE Updates You May Have Missed…     

             ICCIE’s Captive Career Center

The International Center for Captive Insurance Education (ICCIE) recently launched a new feature on our website: The Captive Career Center.

The Captive Career Center is an employment hub that offers opportunities to both employers with openings and those looking for a position in the industry. With an interface that is both intuitive and comprehensive (with searchable fields), the center is free to both employers and position-seekers and is open to the public.

ACI Alumni Network (AAN) members receive a special benefit relative to the Captive Career Center: they will receive advance notice of job openings before positions are posted.

            Recognition of ICCIE Trained Organizations

ICCIE recently announced a new form of recognition for firms that have committed to educating their employees through ICCIE or hiring ICCIE-educated professionals. Such firms will be certified by ICCIE as “ICCIE Trained Organizations” and will be recognized on ICCIE’s website. Additionally, at the company’s election, they may display the certification on the company’s website and marketing materials.

To qualify as an ICCIE Trained Organization, a firm must meet the following requirements:

  1. At least 20% of the captive professionals in the organization must hold the Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) in good standing; and
  2. At least 30% of the company’s captive professionals must be ACIs, Certificate in Captive Insurance (CCI) holders, or currently enrolled in either the ACI or CCI program.

A company interested in securing recognition as an ICCIE Trained Organization may apply via the application form on the ICCIE website. There is no fee for applying as an ICCIE Trained Organization or for receiving or maintaining such recognition. For additional information, go to:
