Vermont will be hosting a major conference this week for the nation’ captive insurance industry.
The Vermont Captive Insurance Association will be holding its annual conference from Tuesday through Thursday. Some 1,000 industry professionals and participants are expected to attend the three-day event.
Now in its 27th year, the conference will be held at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center and the University of Vermont campus in Burlington.
The conference will feature more than 20 seminars and dozens of experts will be participating as panelists.
The three-day conference showcases a wide variety of topics. Seminars will cover issues including: how to measure a captive’s success; operating cell captives; how to decide on the amount of risk to retain within the captive; building board of directors’ bench strength; and establishing best practice policies and procedures.
Conference speakers will include: David Provost, deputy commissioner of the Captive Insurance Division of the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation; Pete Kranz, senior vice president at Beecher Carlson, where he oversees the Vermont captive management office; Sean Rider, managing director of sales and consulting for Willis’ Global Captive Practice; and Dan Labrie, CEO of Housing Authority Insurance Group.
A complete list of seminars and speakers can be found at the Vermont Captive Insurance Association’s website.
The Vermont Captive Insurance Association is the largest trade group for captive insurance in the country. Established in 1985, the association has grown to provide lobbying support on both the state and federal levels for its nearly 500 member companies.
