I have been a member of CIWA since 2005. The organization is a vehicle that promotes so many positive outcomes into the California E&S marketplace. For an E&S carrier, it provides an intimate setting with the most prominent California Wholesale Partners to build and nurture those relationships, insure the prosperity of the E&S industry in California, while informing, protecting and advocating for E&S carriers and wholesalers in the most beautiful of settings. The tangible and intangible benefits are immeasurable. I cannot describe the missed opportunity for those who do not participate and belong to this organization. CIWA affords me the resources and knowledge to offer better solutions and experiences to advocate for our members and distribution partners.”
