Conference Additions

(Southern Pines)….. Susan Euteneuer, Chair of the Annual Conference Committee has announced two additions to the NCCIA Annual Conference program in Durham May 1 – 4 at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club. On Wednesday morning a networking breakfast has been added for those interested in learning about CICA’s Next Gen and Amplify Women Programs. The session is designed to discuss how you can get your company engaged in these initiatives  to improve your workplace and grow your personal network. A light breakfast will be available to those who attend the session. 

Euteneuer also said this year's Conference will for the first time feature Poster Presentations. Poster Presentations are an alternative way to inform on a topic from a more formal spoken presentation. The presenter writes an article and displays it on a tri-fold poster board. Poster Presentations can also be incorporated into online Conference materials. Depending on the situation, sometimes the presenter is available to field questions about the topic during the Conference. You are invited to present a poster (CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION).

Diana Hardy, NCCIA Chair Elect will take office at the Opening Plenary Session; is pictured here addressing a Plenary Session at the recent CICA World meeting.
The Captive 101 Course, sponsored by Hylant, will be taught by Anne Marie Towle, Mike Meehan and Leane Rafalko at the Annual Conference.

The Conference opening Plenary Session, sponsored by Strategic Risk Solutions, will feature Tracy Bell CFA, Director of Equity Strategies at First Horizon Bank who will discuss the shocks going through the financial system due to the war in Ukraine, fallout from Covid and the worst inflation to hit the economy in 40 years. Also, in the opening session the Association will honor Debbie Walker the first Senior Deputy Commissioner of the Captives Division, NC Department  of Insurance, who is retiring March 31 after successfully leading the Captives Division from it’s enactment to the fourth largest domicile in the United States. The Opening Plenary will be an outstanding kickoff for this year’s conference.

CIC Services v. IRS

A great victory for the taxpayer was recorded on March 21 when Federal District Court Judge Travis R. McDonough of the Eastern District of Tennessee ruled in favor of CIC Services in their suit against the IRS. Much has been written about the case and you can read the Court’s decision in its entirety (HERE).
The case which was heard by the Supreme Court and remanded to the District Court has more roads to travel before it is finally decided. A special session at the Annual Conference will be held on Wednesday morning to discuss the case and other cases involving the captive industry pending in the courts. The session will feature Bryan Ridgeway, CIC Services; Logan Gremillion, The Feldman Law Firm; Brandon Kiem, Frazer Ryan Goldberg and Andy Rennick, Womble Bond Dickinson.
So, pack your bags and get ready for the first major domicile conference in 2022.
