Delegate Invitation

Join the Midwest Claim Association at the 51st Annual Midwest Claim Conference May 16-17, 2019.  This year’s theme is “From Good to Great! Shaping Your Future thru Education”.  The Midwest Claim Conference again has offered educational sessions to help us adapt to our changing industry with new opportunities and greater understanding.

The Midwest Claim Association (MCA) Board of Directors and the Midwest Claim Conference Executive Committee extend an invitation for you to join us at the Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf and Conference Center, in Bettendorf, Iowa, for a full schedule of educational sessions including Health, Life, Disability, Workers’ Compensation, Fraud, and Personal/Management.

The conference schedule has been carefully arranged to provide extensive interaction with all attendees. This year we are offering a Thursday morning golf outing at the Historic John Deere Golf Course.  A Thursday evening Welcome Cocktail Reception includes D.J.Trivia, a video/music interactive game that is sure to end your evening with laughter! Join us as we celebrate 101 years of education with the Midwest Claim Association, formerly the Chicago Claim Association.

This year’s Philanthropic event will be Hand – in - Hand, a facility that has been serving the Quad Cities since 2000 by creating fun, inclusive learning experiences for children and young adults.
