ICA Committees

ICA Committee Commitments

We believe in the power of people. To that end, we depend on a number of standing committees to achieve our ICA Executive Committee goals. In addition to providing unfettered access to peers in the claims industry, committee positions are valuable networking and professional development opportunities. Staying in touch helps our committee members stay on top of the latest trends and developments that frequently impact the insurance claims industry.

Committee members typically participate in monthly conference calls (all virtual) as well as one in-person meeting on January 25 – 26th, 2023. Committee members receive numerous invaluable benefits, including access to powerful claims industry resources and connections, and the chance to impact claims administration as an integral part of this vibrant community.
