We have some exciting news!! The Midwest Claim Association (formerly known as the Chicago Claim Association) is pleased to extend this invitation to you and your company to participate in the 51st Annual Midwest Claim Conference! This year’s conference is at the Isle of Bettendorf in Bettendorf, Iowa, Thursday, May 16, 2019 and Friday, May 17, 2019.  The theme for 2019 is “From Good to Great! Shaping Your Future thru Education”.


The primary focus of our conference is to provide your company with a positive experience and valuable innovative networking opportunities.  Claim professionals attend this conference from all specialties, such as Life, Health, Disability, Fraud, Worker’s Compensation and many other disciplines across the claim continuum.  We have created educational tracks under our conference topics of Health, Life, Disability, Worker’s Compensation, Fraud, Customer Service, Compliance/Legal and Management/Personal Development. Continuing Education Credits are also being made available again this year.


The conferences focus is on connecting all of the key industry players; from the employers and the consultants that advise them, to the Agents, Brokers, and TPA’s. Focused on advanced education, intense networking and facilitating the communication and engagement of the changing industry, this new, shorter 1.5 day conference is guaranteed to increase new business opportunities and partnerships.


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.
