ICT Executive Director's Message
Happy Independence Day 2021!

This Independence Day we celebrate another milestone in our nation’s history and continue our return to normal life.  
 
Thankfully, we will be able to enjoy the traditions that are the hallmarks of Independence Day; friends and family, BBQ, and fireworks. We should also take time to reflect on the reason for the celebration, the beginnings of our grand experiment in democracy that has endured for 245 years and whose guiding principles are spelled out in the Declaration of Independence. Specifically, consider these important words,
 
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness…”
 
This is a simple but powerful phrase and within these words are ideals and goals we continue to work toward each and every day. We urge you to remember this on Independence Day and practice it throughout the year.
 
On behalf of the ICT staff and its board of directors, we thank the many men and women who work in this industry and serve the people of Texas. Texas homeowners, drivers, businesses, and others, depend upon your service and support to conduct vital day-to-day activities, complete and be confident in business transactions, and more generally, support their desire to pursue the American dream. Your work is critical to the Texas economy and you provide stability and reassurance to Texans after small losses and far too often, after catastrophic weather events. 
 
The Insurance Council of Texas is grateful for the privilege of serving our members and we wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July.

 
- Albert Betts, Jr.
