Memorable Moments at the 2016 SCCIA Executive Educational Conference
The 17th Annual Executive Educational Conference of the South Carolina Captive Insurance Association (SCCIA) was held September 13-15 at the historic Mills House and Hibernian Hall in downtown Charleston. There were over 200 attendees, including leading captive service providers,  owners and regulators from several states. Tropical Storm Julia dropped several inches of rain on Charleston on Wednesday, flooding several streets, but the conference was unaffected.
