The Western Region Captive Insurance Conference (WRCIC) has provided additional details about the upcoming event, including a list of speakers representing a variety of roles within the captive industry.

Speakers at this year's conference, scheduled for June 27–29 at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, include government and captive insurance association officials, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and others.

WRCIC session topics include the 4 Cs—captives, control, consolidation, and change; pooling; claims management; tax updates; captive investments; tips for getting captive service providers to work together; and captive insurance hot topics.

Participants in the WRCIC's Regulator Roundup will include Donald Ashwood, captive coordinator in the Oklahoma Insurance Department; Vincent R. Gosz, chief captive analyst in the Arizona Department of Insurance and Financial Institutions Captive Program; Jonathan Habart, director of captive insurance in the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance; Sam Komo, captive manager in the Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance; Joe McDonald, director of captives in the South Carolina Department of Insurance; Allan Smith, client service leader and senior vice president at Marsh Captive Solutions; Nick J. Stosic, deputy commissioner in the Nevada Department of Insurance; and Travis K. Wegkamp, captive insurance director in the Utah Insurance Department.

Most WRCIC sessions are eligible for International Center for Captive Insurance Education credits as well as continuing professional education and continuing legal education credits.

The WRCIC brings together the state captive insurance associations of Arizona, Missouri, Nevada, and Utah to jointly host an annual industry conference. Renea Louie, chief operations officer at Pro Group Captive Management Services, is the conference chair for the 2022 WRCIC.

"The regional concept born in 2009 provides for many domiciles to come together annually and provide an efficient, broad, and effective conference, robust with regulators and diverse domicile topics," Ms. Louie said. "The efficiencies and cost savings it provides as opposed to attending four or more conferences each year in the west is a win-win and saves considerable time and money. The regional approach also builds larger synergies between neighboring regulators, providers, and others."
