Central Illinois Chapter

The Central Illinois Chapter of the IASA was founded in 1964 and is comprised of members from the Central Illinois region. The purpose of our chapter is to provide members with opportunities to engage in professional networking, industry education, earn CPE’s and informational updates regarding the insurance industry, critical to the areas in which they live. Our chapter offers these opportunities through our annual spring and fall conferences, which provides opportunity to network and earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. Topics may include evaluating investments, auditing standards, monitoring and control, rating agency activities, world class implementations, forensics accounting, reinsurance, ethics and GAAP updates to name just a few. We welcome you to join our chapter! For more information on how to engage, attend our events or volunteer with our chapter community please contact Josh Marques, Chapter President at Marques, Joshua Joshua.Marques@horacemann.com or click here to go directly to our chapter webpage.
