Michigan Chapter

The IASA Michigan Chapter is comprised of members from the state of Michigan. 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 Spring and Fall events, 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 Statutory 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 Joe Nielsen, chapter president.
