Overview of Conference

About the VCIA Annual Conference

33 Years in the Making!

VCIA's first Annual Conference was held in 1985, in the early years of Vermont's captive industry. Less than a dozen people attended! Since that time, the conference has grown steadily and flourished into a vibrant, energetic event attracting the industry's very best and brightest year after year.

The VCIA Annual Conference now proudly hosts 1100 people from all over the world for two and a half days of the finest captive education available. Attendees have access to any level of learning -- from basic sessions to the most advanced. Professional education credits are offered (CPE / CLE / ICCIE) to those who attend the sessions. Nearly 100 companies exhibit at VCIA.

VCIA is equally well-known for its high quality education as it is for its many opportunities for people to connect with other captive professionals. Whether you are new to the industry or have many years of experience, there is something for you to learn and someone for you to meet at VCIA! Join us in August!
