2018 Annual Meeting – SIGFA – Colonial Williamsburg!                  

Each year SIGFA offers two events to its members in addition to the various resources that it provides throughout the year.

The 2018 Annual Meeting of the Self-Insurance Guaranty Funds of America will be held October 1-2, 2018 at the Williamsburg Lodge in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.  We are excited about the opportunity to reach out to state guaranty funds, share information & ideas, and develop a network of industry professionals dedicated to increasing the efficiency of their fund’s operation & minimizing the impact of insolvent self- insured employers.

Our program includes educational sessions coupled with social events offering you opportunities to learn, share, and develop contacts across the industry…across the nation.  The pre-convention brochure will be available for your review in coming weeks.  We hope you will join us this fall in Colonial Williamsburg for the only conference exclusively designed for self-insured guaranty funds.
