Interested in Volunteering?



The IASA is unique because of the deep reliance the organization places on volunteers at both the national and local levels.  There are hundreds of volunteers supporting the association in nearly every facet of our organization.  Volunteers serve on the Board of Directors and Management Team as they represent the interests of the membership in all key decisions.  Volunteers also support program development and execution.  

The efforts of these volunteers help the Association deliver exceptional value to our broad membership throughout the insurance industry.  These contributions benefit not only the industry, but also the individual, and their employer.  It also ensures that IASA retains a close linkage with the needs of industry professionals.

One of the best professional development experiences...

"I have been engaged with the IASA for about ten years through at the local and national levels. Originally, as someone new to the industry the IASA helped me to get up to speed on the current economic and technology trends impacting the industry. More important, it provided a network of industry experts that I can reach out to with questions and that has helped me grow personally and professionally.

Personally, I believe that my involvement as a Volunteer has helped me develop both my technical and “soft skills”. As a Finance and Accounting professional, I have been able to be engaged in activities that keep me informed on industry trends, while exposing me to activities that I would not be engaged in through my normal routine activities. For example, I have had the opportunity to actively participate on activities related to marketing, educational content development, and supporting a large conference.

 From an organizational perspective, I believe that benefits have also been substantial. The support of my IASA activities, has demonstrated a commitment to my professional growth and on‐going development. Additionally, I have been able to leverage the skills I have learned with IASA in an impactful way within my organization. Due to the additional interaction with network peers, I have able to strengthen my interpersonal communication skills, inform leadership of technology and business trends, and helped identify solution providers for upcoming project needs. Overall, I think that volunteering with the IASA has been one of the best professional development experiences of my career. It has helped me to accelerate my personal and professional growth and helped me to see the value that my company places on investing in our people.
