A Grass Roots Beginning
The forum started simply as a focus group of those interested in long term care at the annual meeting of a major information vendor to the insurance industry. Further sponsored by major reinsurers and other vendors, by 1994 the group had its own meeting agenda and separate guest speakers.
As the industry and group grew, leaders within the group recognized the need to split off and incorporated as the Long Term Care International Forum on April 11th, 2000 as a not-for-profit trade association. Further growth was realized in November 2005 when LTCIF merged with National Long Term Care Association, another industry association dedicated to advancing the LTC insurance.
Today, the LTCIF is a leader in promoting efficiency, effectiveness and high standards in long term care insurance. Volunteers put together our Annual Forums which boasts the involvement of about 50 insurers, vendors, and service providers and even more individuals and volunteers - all dedicated to promoting a healthy long term care insurance industry.
