Who We Are and What We Do
IASA is a non-profit, education association and one of the leading member-driven insurance organizations. It is comprised of volunteers from the insurance carriers and solution providers working together to deliver first class educational events, highlighted by an annual conference. IASA offers a suite of education and networking opportunities through events, services and other resources delivered to members and customers both in-person and on-line. IASA’s success is accomplished with a small full-time staff through coordinated initiatives at both a national and local chapter level.
