Ohio Chapter

The IASA Ohio Chapter was founded in 1976 and is comprised of members from the state of Ohio. 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 signature Fall Conference and virtual 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, current industry trends/developments, 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 Patrick Sheridan, Chapter President, patricksheridan@westfieldgrp.com or click here to go directly to our chapter webpage.
