The Future Focus Group has an exciting opportunity for young CILA members who are enthusiastic, able and willing. We are in the process of developing a diverse, dynamic and engaging team who can collaboratively deliver a project that supports the CILA Charter and ultimately enhances members’ experiences.  

This is a fantastic opportunity for members who are keen to: make a meaningful difference; develop and enhance their professional competencies; and interact with like minded claims professionals. 

The Future Focus team will propose a project or projects to the Executive Committee and the Institute anticipates the time commitment to be approximately six days over twelve months.

  1. Your enthusiasm for this opportunity [recommended word limit circa 100 words];
