LASIE Announces the 2016 Annual Conference Agenda. Click Here for More Information.
Originally formed in 1991 to promote and protect the right of businesses to self-insure, LASIE's services and mission have expanded over the years based upon the ever changing insurance and regulatory landscapes and the needs of our members.
In 2015 LASIE has expanded its services to become the single "Voice of the Self-Insurance Industry."
LASIE will become the legislative and regulatory watchdog to protect against laws that would adversely affect all lines of self-insurance, including workers' compensation, health, auto, general liability, property and casualty, marine, and fiduciary liability.
We will expand our educational services and also our legal and legislative presence at the state level, without decreasing our focus on workers' compensation.
