International Center for Captive Insurance Education




November 10, 2008




Burlington, VT -- The International Center for Captive Insurance Education (ICCIE) finished the third quarter of 2008 on the heels of a very successful VCIA conference marked by ACI presentations, scholarship awards, and its most successful pre-conference annual celebration yet.  And just ahead, with the end of the quarter barely in the rearview mirror, ICCIE is launching its highly-anticipated "Accounting for Captives" course.

ICCIE's presence at VCIA this past August began with four face-to-face courses that were all well received.  Monday night featured its yearly Anniversary Celebration -- for the first time at the Burlington Boathouse.  A record crowd attended and witnessed the conferring of Associate in Captive Insurance (ACI) designations, and participated in the balloon-pop fundraising event.  The evening was a great kickoff to the conference.

During the conference's General Session VCIA President Molly Lambert awarded the VCIA Distinguished Scholar Award to Jen Ryan of HSBC, and the Harry House Scholarship (sponsored by Housing Authority Insurance Group) was awarded to Samit Shrivastava.  Both Ryan and Shrivistava will receive full scholarships to attend the ACI designation program.
