30 Tips from 30 Years

Ever since its founding in 1986 by a group of CPAs who organized about 1,400 CPA firms into a mutual insurance company, CAMICO has been directed and managed by CPAs, providing professional liability, employment practices, and other solutions for CPA firms.

Over that 30-year period, CAMICO has grown to more than 8,200 CPA firms in 45 states and the District of Columbia. A major component of CAMICO’s success is the company distinguishing itself by providing CPA-centric services and products that CPAs can’t find anywhere else—also known as The CAMICO Experience.

Since its inception, CAMICO has helped CPA firms with effective risk management services that cover virtually all scopes of CPA practice, providing services that focus on CPAs and policyholders before anyone else.
