Liz Steinman Announced as ICCIE Fellow
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 ACI designation, have significant experience working full time in the captive industry, and have demonstrated a significant commitment to the industry through service.

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 Mr. Christie with the scholarship award at the VCIA General Session.
