California Self-Insurers Association 
In 1929 the California Self-Insurers Association came into being. Its stated purpose was to monitor and protect the legitimate interests of self-insurers in the workers’ compensation field. The California Self-Insurers Association performs these functions by providing educational opportunities as well as legislative and regulatory support and analysis to its members.
Today CSIA has over 100 members, representing many of California’s largest companies. The association provides ongoing representation and leadership in the field of self-insured workers’ compensation issues. Members benefit from the valuable resources, ongoing educational programs and two annual conferences put on by the association.
