What our members are saying about the benefits of membership...
“Through the Illinois Self-Insured Association's sponsors and members, we are kept abreast of trends within the Commission as well as significant recent rulings which might affect availability of benefits. Equally valuable is the insight the Association provides regarding “hot topics” within the state legislature which should be taken into account formulating one’s workmen’s program structure.”
Gina Rossi, Marriott Claims Services
“The Nuts & Bolts seminar provided me with a comprehensive overview of Illinois workers’ compensation after I had been away from claims handling for more than 10 years. I referred to the materials often afterwards.”
Clare Fleming, Exelon Corporation
“The Annual ISIA Seminar provides excellent training and information, opportunities for networking, and valuable insight into the Workers’ Compensation process in Illinois!”

“I never stop learning in my job as it is a changing environment. Not only do these seminars keep me current on trends and developments, but it has introduced me to others in the workers’ compensation industry who I can call on throughout the year for more ideas.”
