The Oregon Self-Insurers Association was established in 1983 to promote a cost effective workers’compensation system in Oregon.
As a non-profit, mutual benefit trade association, OSIA’s membership is comprised of certified self-insured and large –deductible employers, as well as persons, firms, and organizations in business to provide services to the self insured community.
The association is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors which includes an Executive Committee elected annually by the membership. The Executive Committee is comprised of a President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Legislative Director, Marketing and Membership Director, and Program Director. The OSIA Board also includes a Regular Member Representative, Associate Member Representative, Public Entity Representative, Finance/Budget Representative, Legislative Representative, OSHA/Loss Control Representative, Communications Representative and Alternative Surety Program Representative. Committees are established as needed to assist the board in advancing the mission of OSIA. In addition, the OSIA employs an executive director to assist in the management of the organization, and a registered lobbyist who assists the organization with legislative activities.
