The Board of Managers of CSIA would like to wish everyone a very happy 2021.  To keep you updated, the Board will be meeting in mid-February to determine if it will be possible to hold our 2021 Annual Meeting in person.  This largely depends on whether the Governor allows Disneyland and the surrounding hotels to open.  We will post an update following that board meeting.

However, we do plan to conduct regular webinars on topics of interest throughout the year with our first scheduled one coming later this month.  The topic will be on Working from Home: How to Manage the Ergonomic, Mental Health and Productivity Challenges that this New Normal Brings.  This webinar will be free for CSIA members in good standing and $25 for non-members.  Stay tuned for more details!  If  you have a topic for a webinar that you would like the CSIA Program Committee to explore, please send your suggestions to [email protected] and your suggestion will be reviewed by the committee.  

 

Learn About CSIA

Since its inception in 1929, the California Self-Insurers Association has continually met its mission of monitoring and protecting the legitimate interests of workers’ compensation self-insurers. Over the years CSIA’s mission has undergone many changes.  While it is still the primary goal of CSIA to protect the interests of self-insurers in the field of workers’ compensation, one of our main objectives for 2018 and beyond is to get more self-insured employers engaged in the workers’ compensation process.

More employers are making the decision to self-insure their workers’ compensation programs because of the financial benefits.  However, many of these same employers then make the decision to completely rely on other resources to manage the process.  As a result, they are not fully realizing the benefit of being self-insured.  Employers need to be engaged in the management of their programs so that they can better understand why certain claim decisions are made, and what the true costs of their programs are.  Engagement can mean many things, but at its very core level, education is a key component.  It is also critical to network with other self-insured employers and CSIA is the ideal resource to facilitate these interactions.  This critical ‘engagement’ in the field of self-insurance can apply to those employers with high deductible programs as well.  Those employers are essentially self-insured to their retention level, and they too need to better understand how and why their money is being spent.
