As many of you know, VCIA hosts a couple of educational sessions in different cities across the country to espouse the virtues of captive insurance. We call these our World Famous Road Shows, well, because the Ringley Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus is no more! It is an afternoon that focuses on the basics of captive insurance companies, including the reasons for formation, the feasibility process and key issues in putting a successful captive program together. A brief overview of Vermont as a captive domicile is also discussed.
It hit us late last year that we have never brought our Road Show to our Homeland – the Great State of Vermont! So next Wednesday, October 25th at the Burlington Hilton we will presenting the Road Show for companies in Vermont (and neighboring regions), as well as enticing finance, business and accounting students from local colleges to come learn about this great industry in their backyard.
We will have Vermont’s chief regulator, Dave Provost on a panel with Rusty Young, a Shareholder at Burlington law firm Primmer Piper Eggleston & Cramer, PC. The panel will be moderated by Ian Davis of Vermont’s Department of Economic Development. I will host the second panel of two of the industry’s experienced captive owners. Jan Klodowski is vice present of Agrisurance Inc. and is responsible for developing and administering their successful Captive/Alternative Risk Financing programs. She manages Agrisurance, Inc., a Vermont-domiciled Sponsored Captive focused on service the farming and agricultural industry. And Wilda Seymour, the corporate director of Professional Liability for the University of Pennsylvania Health System and vice president, Franklin Casualty Insurance Company, their Vermont-domiciled captive.
Hope you can join us to get a better idea why Vermont is the #1 captive domicile in the United States!
