The work of the CILA is supported by committees, with each committee focusing on a particular aspect of Institute activity.

The purpose of this Committee is to support our members in the achievement of our qualifications. The Committee will seek to understand the issues faced by our members and the efficacy of the current Institute educational offerings. In this way the Committee will put forward ideas to enhance the Institute’s support to its members.

In addition the Committee will consider the necessary knowledge, competences and skills required by Loss Adjusters and promote Institute projects that support our members so ensuring we are, in the words of our President Graham Smart, ready now and ready for the future.
