Welcome to the Insurance Loss Control Association (ILCA)

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 in early 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 education 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 association.  To promote growth, we've started student chapters at select universities and colleges with safety curriculums.  For current members, I would 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 administration@insurancelosscontrol.org.

Topic planning for our 2017 conference is already underway and will be based on attendee feedback from 2016'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 2017 annual conference on October 16 -18 in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
