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. 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. Attendees and supporters include not only insurance risk control, management and underwriting, but also 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. 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 to help build our membership. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We also would appreciate your input and ideas as we look to expand our Website and develop a state of the art homepage.
Planning for our 2015 conference is already underway and topics will be based on attendee feedback from our 2014 conference as we strive to maintain or exceed the high level achieved from years past. Please feel free to 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 the best it can be.
Once again, welcome to ILCA! We hope to see you at our 2015 conference on October 5-7 at the Cincinnati Marriott Northeast Hotel in Mason, Ohio.

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.
To provide education and knowledge sharing opportunities that improve the loss control capabilities of our members, and to raise awareness of the benefits of professional loss control practices.
