SIIA Launches Future Leaders Initiative

Association to Create Pathways for the Next Generation of Industry Leaders

April 3, 2018 – The Self-Insurance Institute of America, Inc. (SIIA) today announced the launch of the SIIA Future Leaders (SFL) initiative, designed to encourage talented younger professionals to become involved with the association and the self-insurance industry.

“This has been in the planning stage for some time and we are now pleased to move forward and make it happen” said SIIA President & CEO Mike Ferguson. “The need for such an initiative has become increasingly clear given the evolving demographics of our membership and now our association is properly focused to be successful in creating pathways for the next generation of industry leaders.”

The first phase of this initiative is to promote younger professional participation at its upcoming National Conference & Expo, which is scheduled for September 23-25, 2018 in Austin. The event will feature multiple educational sessions and networking opportunities geared specifically for this target audience (defined as under 40), along with a discounted registration fee. The complete conference program will be announced soon, so watch for details.

To help guide the implementation of this initiative, the association has formed a SIIA Future Leaders Committee, which is comprised of younger managers/executives from leading member companies. The group has already identified additional exciting engagement ideas that are currently under consideration for possible implementation.

This is a developing story and SIIA looks forward to previewing further initiative highlights in the coming months and years. For more information, contact Wrenne Bartlett at
