Committee Overview

DRI’s upcoming Insurance Coverage and Claims Institute (“ICCI”), scheduled for April 2-4, 2014 at the Swissôtel Chicago, offers attendees a one of a kind learning opportunity to stay abreast of insurance law’s ever-evolving nuances. But more than that, the ICCI brings practitioners and claims executives from around the country together and provides them an unparalleled opportunity to connect and forge new relationships.

Make plans now to enjoy the ambience of Chicago’s renowned restaurants at one of ICCI’s celebrated evening dine arounds. Always enjoyable, ICCI’s dine arounds feature a restaurant for every taste and provide attendees the perfect opportunity to unwind with one another and enjoy Chicago’s fine food fare. Here is a little “taste” of what we have to offer:

The Insurance Coverage and Claims institute is once again teaming up with Bridge to Success for a service project. The mission of Bridge to Success is to enhance employment opportunities for at-risk, low-income, no-income men, women, and young adults by providing high-end interview and workplace appropriate clothing, coupled with coaching, to build self-confidence through appearance, interview preparation and sense of belonging at the workplace. We will be assisting Bridge to Success by holding a suit drive. We will have a station to collect suits (or monetary donations) before and during the Networking Reception on Wednesday, April 2. We will also collect suits (or monetary donations) during the breaks on Thursday, April 3. For every suit donated (or every $20 donation), the donator will be entered into a drawing to win a prize. Please do not forget to bring your lightly used business suits to assist this worthy cause!
