VCIA's Flagship Legislative Day in the Vermont Statehouse

Each year in January, VCIA members visit the Vermont State House for our annual Legislative Day. This special event, for VCIA members only, highlights the successful working relationship between our Association and the State's elected and appointed leaders.

2023 Legislative Day, January 18th, 2023

The 2023 VCIA Legislative Day will be an in-person event in Montpelier, the capitol of Vermont. The last couple of years required us to take the event virtual, due to COVID. We had a great turnout and were able to involve people who were not on the ground in Vermont. While the 2023 program returns to a live event, the State still has a restrictive visitation policy in place. Therefore, the upcoming Legislative Day will only permit the VCIA Board, staff, and legislative committee members of the VCIA. Considering this, VCIA plans to deliver to its members an exclusive, detailed report of the day’s events—you can expect quotes from lawmakers, pictures of testimony, a breakdown of the possible captive bill being put forth, and much more!

VCIA's 2022 Legislative Day is in the books and was a smash hit! Legislative members praised VCIA and Vermont's captive insurance industry for its continuing growth and economic impact. May 2022 Update: H515 Captive Bill, with VCIA's support, signed into law!

Senator Ann Cummings, Chair of Senate Finance Committee: "We love having the captive insurance industry in Vermont. Please relay that to your members!" 

After testimony in both the Vermont Senate and House of Representatives, VCIA President Rich Smith and DFR Deputy Commissioner of Captive Insurance Dave Provost facilitated a Q&A with VCIA members about the latest iteration of the insurance/captive bill. It was smiles all around!
