This belief starts with our company culture and resonates throughout the CAMICO program.

In the early 1980s, CPAs were faced with mounting liability insurance crisis. The major insurance carriers found themselves with insufficient funds to cover their claims. Many withdrew from the market, leaving their policyholders without insurance, while others imposed huge premium increases that made coverage unaffordable for many accountants. In response to the crisis, the California Society of CPAs convened a task force, which recommended the creation of a company that would operate solely for the benefits of its members.
One June 24 1986, CAMICO opened its doors for business with two full-time employees reporting to the President. Within a month, 1,250 CPA members joined.
