The captive insurance industry has more opportunities today than ever before to shape the future! With new emerging risks to address, captive and risk managers need to be better prepared to anticipate solutions for future business needs. They also need a robust talent pool engaged in learning the captive industry and developing strategies for optimal use of captives.

The 2019 CICA International Conference theme "Captives: Shaping the Future" will help captive industry professionals develop future ready solutions and strategies by bringing together the industry's best minds to share knowledge, generate new ideas and accelerate captive careers.
