Midwest Chapter

The IASA Midwest Chapter is comprised of members from Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri. 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 chapter conferences, which provides opportunity to network and earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. Topics may include economic updates, ethics and compliance, tax updates, investments, IT and data security, STAT 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 Staci Tobe, chapter president.
