The MCAC Board has approved the development of an Insurance Captive for MCAC members.  The captive is an insurance company owned by the members to provide insurance for the members at preferable rates. The captive will initially insure liability, auto, property, crime and contractor’s equipment. Profits in the captive are spent on programs for members or redistributed back to members.
