The Western Region Captive Insurance Conference (WRCIC) will be held June 14–16, 2021, the WRCIC announced.
The WRCIC conference, which was originally scheduled for May 18–20, 2020, but was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, will be held at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
"The show will go in the spring of 2021," the WRCIC said.
"We are very eager to host the 2021 WRCIC conference in Utah in June if it is safe to do so. The WRCIC continues to serve the entire United States, working together to enhance collaboration, cooperation, and best practices," said Brandy Alderson, president of the Utah Captive Insurance Association and WRCIC conference chair.
The conference, the WRCIC noted, will include a "Captive 101 boot camp" as well as educational sessions in which captive experts will be "speaking on hot topics, trends, and the next level in captive insurance."
Other captive conferences also have been rescheduled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, the Captive Insurance Companies Association, which earlier canceled its 2020 conference that had been scheduled for March 8–10, has rescheduled that conference to March 14–16, 2021, at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In addition, the Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA) earlier announced that its 2021 annual conference would be held online on August 10–12. "As much as VCIA would like to meet in-person, the prospects for having large scale in-person conferences in 2021 is not a sure thing. Multiple economic and public health impacts of the pandemic are being felt among our members," VCIA President Rich Smith said in a statement.
