2019 Conference Information
Conference Agenda (coming soon)
Welcome to the Insurance Loss Control Association (ILCA)!
Hello and welcome to the Insurance Loss Control Association! I was honored this winter to be elected President and am looking forward to furthering the success of the organization. It is an exciting time for ILCA, as we continue to see growth. For those that may not be familiar, we are the only professional organization dedicated solely to the Loss Control field in the Insurance Industry. Our membership consists of loss control professionals and underwriters looking to further their networking opportunities, expand their industry knowledge, and be active advocates for the loss control field.
Our prominent event is our conference, held annually in October. This past year was another successful event, as we had more than 25 different carriers and brokers in attendance with a record number of first-time attendees. The conference was held in Hoffman Estates, IL and included topics such as Food Safety, Trends in the Healthcare Industry, Wearable Technology, and Fire Suppressions systems to name a few.
This year, we are actively working on new initiatives such as hosting webinars periodically during the year on a variety of topics. Stay tuned through our website and LinkedIn page for further updates. We are also continuing to grow our student membership with colleges and universities offering safety related degrees. This program has allowed several student members to make the necessary connections to obtain a needed internship or full-time position after graduation. I can personally advocate for this program as I had obtained my internship (which lead to full-time) from being a student member during my undergraduate years.
Planning for our 2019 conference began early in the year with dates and a location coming very shortly. We hope that you consider attending this event and encourage others to do so as well. If you are not already a member, I invite you to visit our webpage at www.insurancelosscontrol.org and register. In addition, we are always looking for speakers, so if you are interested in presenting on a topic, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or another member of the ILCA Board.
Again, welcome to the Insurance Loss Control Association and we hope to see you at our conference in October !
