Pacific Northwest Chapter

The IASA Pacific Northwest Chapter is comprised of members from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska. 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 conference in the fall, which provides opportunity to network and earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. Topics may include updates from regulators, auditing standards, monitoring and control, statutory reporting updates, economic updates, forensics accounting, 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 Reese Benjamin, Chapter President at reese.benjamin@ey.com or click here to go directly to our chapter webpage.
