Connecting the Cape’s insurance community since 1898

Our two main areas of focus are education and networking, with a large number of targeted events and seminars being held throughout the year in various parts of the province.
The IICOGH runs a number of regular recreational and fundraising activities for members throughout the year. These range from golf and lawn bowls to charity auctions and social events such as general knowledge and music quizzes. The main event on our calendar is the glamorous annual gala dinner, where members of the industry get together to network with all their counterparts in the industry whilst enjoying an entertaining evening of dinner and dancing with live entertainment. A black tie affair that is always enjoyed by all.
