SIIA Future Leaders

The Self-Insurance Institute of America, Inc. (SIIA) launched the SIIA Future Leaders (SFL) initiative in 2018, designed to encourage talented younger professionals to become involved with the association and the self-insurance industry. To help guide the implementation of this initiative, the association has an established SIIA Future Leaders Committee, which is comprised of younger managers/executives from leading member companies.

“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.”

This successful initiative involved younger professional participation at its National Conference & Expos, multiple SIIA Mentor Connection Forums, a virtual conference and in-person Future Leader Forums. These events have featured multiple educational sessions and networking opportunities geared specifically for this target audience (defined as under 40), at discounted registration fees.

The association continues to create pathways for the next generation of industry leaders with the guidance and cooperation of the invaluable committee members.
