Dear Indiana Self-Insurer and Worker’s Compensation Professional:
ISIA was incorporated in 1976 and has provided continuous service to Indiana’s self-insurer community since that time. I am enclosing an informational document which outlines the ISIA mission. While the number of self-insured employers is less than it was in 1976, our Board of Directors believes that our Association is a valuable resource to the worker’s compensation community and can continue to supply important services and education to our members. You may notice that the dues are increased over those of past years, and it is with reluctance that we take that step. Our motivation in this regard is simply a function of the reduced number of self-insured employers and ancillary businesses. We hope that you understand and that you will continue to support our mission.
We will be scheduling and planning our Spring Seminar soon and will let you know when those arrangements have been finalized. We are working with our partners to assure that any legislative action which affects our worker’s compensation law this year will be reasonable and necessary. And we are continuing our dialog with the Worker’s Compensation Board in order to assure that self-insurance remains an efficient option for Indiana employers.
Please consider becoming an ISIA member again this year. We challenge you to participate in our endeavors and let us know your needs. The worker’s compensation community in Indiana is important to employees and employers alike and the self-insured component of that community is made up of the best of the best. ISIA wants to work with you to meet your goals for education, networking, and response to self-insurance issues in Indiana.
