CICA unveils distinguished service award winner 2023

The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) has revealed the winner of its Distinguished Service Award 2023, which celebrates significant contributions to the industry.

Joel Chansky, consulting actuary at Milliman, picked up the prize at CICA’s annual conference, which is in Palm Springs, California, this year.

CICA described Chansky as an influential voice in the captive insurance industry and highlighted his actuarial knowledge and the generous contributions of his time and expertise to individuals and the wider industry.

Chansky has been a consulting actuary with Milliman for more than 30 years. He frequently presents on the topics of captives, risk retention groups and alternative risk financing, and is a teaching faculty member of the International Center for Captive Insurance Education.

He has provided leadership and guidance to state, national and international organisations as a former board member of the National Risk Retention Association, the Arizona Captive Insurance Association, and the Captive Insurance Council of the District of Columbia. He is an active CICA volunteer and a past CICA board chair.

Chansky said receiving this award was a really great honour. “I look at the past recipients and to be mentioned in the same breath as them is humbling,” he said.
