ICCIE Updates: CICA Continues as Leading Financial Supporter

CICA
September 26, 2017

Following the "Big Changes at the International Center for Captive Insurance Education" (ICCIE) announced in July, autumn opens with abundant updates from the center.

CICA Continues as Leading Financial Supporter of ICCIE

The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) continued its financial support for ICCIE with a contribution of $10,000, presented during the ICCIE Anniversary Celebration on the eve of the Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA) Annual Conference in August. The 2017 donation marks the eighth year that CICA has been the biggest financial supporter of ICCIE.

Tina Truax McCuin Announced as ICCIE Fellow

At the VCIA Conference's general session, ICCIE awarded the ICCIE Fellow designation to Tina Truax McCuin of TD Wealth Management. The new designation, 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 significant commitment to the industry through service.

New Course Offered on "Tax Aspects of Offshore Captives"

After introducing "Regulation of Captives" last year, ICCIE is premiering a new elective in October, "Tax Aspects of Offshore Captives." The course was created by Tom Jones and Bruce Wright, who recorded lectures for the new offering and will be conducting the live webinars as well.

ICCIE Elects New Board Members

ICCIE says it is incredibly fortunate to have the talents of exceptional individuals guiding the organization as members of its Board of Directors. New board members who started their terms in August are Hartley Hartman (Johnson Lambert, South Carolina), Joe Holahan (Morris, Manning & Martin, Washington, D.C.), Dan Labrie (consultant, Connecticut), Chris Mandel (Sedgwick, Tennessee), Sherry Ricker (Willis Towers Watson, Texas), and Anne Marie Towle (JLT, Indiana).

New Instructors Join ICCIE Faculty

ICCIE says that the quality of its courses and programs are only as good as the faculty members it attracts, and that it has tremendous people contributing their services. The organization recently welcomed three new instructors to the ICCIE faculty: Ed Koral from Deloitte, Sergio Micucci from Strategic Risk Solutions (SRS), and Christopher Plumpton from SRS.

ICCIE Announces Scholarship Recipients

At the VCIA Conference's general session last month, ICCIE announced the winners of two full scholarships.

The Distinguished Scholar Award, recognizing VCIA's tremendous financial commitment to ICCIE, went to Mike Lynch of Pro Group Captive Management. 

The Harry House Scholarship went to Victoria Russell from Howard University. The Housing Authority Insurance Group sponsors this ICCIE scholarship, which is awarded to a minority student in an accredited college or university risk management program.
