CIWA Future

Young professionals dedicated to the California Wholesale and Specialty Insurance Market. 

CIWA Future was formed in 2017 by the California Insurance Wholesalers Association (CIWA). Our mission is to connect industry professionals who are under 40 years old to a network of dedicated young professionals who all do business in California. Our key focus will be to provide education, advocacy, and networking opportunities for the next generation of industry leaders. We will accomplish this by providing members with educational resources and holding regional events in California where young professionals can learn, form relationships and become further engaged in our great industry to ensure a bright future. 

Currently, the CIWA Future Committee is working hard to ensure the success of this group and to plan and execute a kick-off event. Please sign up below to receive email updates and offers from the CIWA Young Professionals Group.
