Welcome to the Insurance Loss Control Association (ILCA) website and thanks for giving it a look!
ILCA was founded in 1931 and continues to be an organization comprised of insurance risk control professionals. Not widely known outside of insurance circles, Loss Control is a safety discipline that serves to protect lives and property while also helping businesses mitigate loss exposures. Utilizing a wide variety of technical skills, our members are knowledgeable in fire protection engineering, construction, workplace safety management, commercial fleet operations, product liability, and exposure control expertise for multiple lines of insurance policies. ILCA's primary purpose is to build on these skill sets and to promote our role within the industry.
ILCA provides members with opportunities for technical education and networking with an annual conference (our premier event). Held annually in October, the association hosts speakers covering current loss control and safety topics along with the promotion of soft skill development. Attendees and supporters are not merely limited to insurance risk control, management and underwriting, but have expanded to include service providers, students in safety curriculums and anyone having loss prevention interests. CEUs (1.0) are awarded to conference attendees needing CSP continuing educatiion credit while members receive newsletters published throughout the year with articles from experts relevant to our profession.
ILCA seeks and welcomes participants and new members, especially those entering our profession and those who may not know of our assocation. To promote growth, we've started student chapters at select universitites and colleges with safety curriculums. For current members, I'd encourage you to reach out to fellow Loss Control contacts as sharing information about the benefits and professionalism of the annual conference is something we all can do to expand the ILCA footprint. If you know of any prospects that we could contact, please let us know by email at email@example.com.
Another targeted growth area is our Website, so we earnestly seek your input and ideas to develop a state of the art homepage. We also have a newly developed LinkedIn group for ILCA members as an avenue for networking and communication. Members can join by sending a Request to Join through their LinkedIn account to the Insurance Loss Control Association group.
Topics for our 2014 conference will be based on attendee feedback from 2013's event as we strive to maintain the high level achieved from years past. Please contact me or any member of the board with ideas for how we can improve. We also want to encourage others to become more involved in making ILCA all it can be.
Once again, welcome to ILCA! We hope to see you at our annual conference on October 20, 21 and 22 at the Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel in Carmel, Indiana.

As a way to help ILCA members with training, we have added a new glossary of loss control terms to our website. You can access them by clicking on the training tab to the left or clicking the Glossary link below.
