The CSIA Organization

The Association is governed by officers and a Board of Managers who conduct CSIA business between membership meetings. The Board appoints an Executive Committee of five individuals (with the President as an ex-officio member). This committee works through a number of sub-committees, in cooperation with the Association’s Executive Director, to handle day to day issues.

As a provider of workers’ comp managed care services to California’s self-insured employers and as an employer ourselves, we receive great value from our CSIA membership.  The association provides educational opportunities, through conferences and other means, which are timely and relevant.  We are kept current on issues affecting employers and the self-insured, which makes us better partners in serving their needs.

Event Highlights

2018 Annual Meeting and Educational Conference

Our 2018 Annual Meeting and Educational Conference was another highly rated event, and as always attendance was exceptional. Two of the highest rated sessions was "Violence in the Workplace" and "Managing the Needs of Injured Workers".

The feedback for this conference was exceptional. Stewart Reubens from Stander, Reubens, Thomas & Kinsey said: "This CSIA program was the best that I can remember!!"

CSIA will return to the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, CA for our 2019 Annual Meeting and Educational Conference. The conference will be held on April 8 and 9, 2019. If you want to know what is on the radar for the largest California employers, this conference is a must.
