Gamma Iota Sigma is pleased to present the 47th Annual International Conference in Chicago, Illinois. The Conference is the premier event for the insurance industry to engage the next generation, and the most comprehensive event for students to develop professionally and expand on their industry exposure and knowledge. The agenda includes the largest career fair of its kind, educational sessions, Dive In diversity and inclusion sessions, and keynote addresses, in addition to leadership seminars and ample networking opportunities.

In 2017, the Conference drew 570 top risk management, insurance, and actuarial science students and advisors from 55 colleges and universities throughout North America, plus 71 sponsors, 62 career fair exhibitors, and over 250 industry representatives. Student attendees are preparing for careers as risk managers, actuaries, underwriters, brokers, consultants, agents, and more across all areas of the insurance, risk management, and actuarial science sector. They are looking for internships for the summer of 2019 or full-time positions for January 2019 and May 2019. More than 400 interviews for internships and entry-level positions were conducted on-site during the 2017 conference, with multiple offers reported from participating companies and organizations.

For sponsoring companies, the 47th Annual International Conference offers your organization meaningful exposure to the most accomplished students from multiple schools in a single setting. It is the ideal opportunity to meet the future leaders of our industry and support their educational and professional development.  In addition to the benefits your sponsorship provides to your company, your sponsorship also offsets more than 70% of the cost for each of the 550+ student attendees, and supports our year-round programming delivered to over 4,000 student members.

For students, the Conference provides access to a broad array of companies and sectors, industry organizations, career paths and guidance in an experience complemented by a robust slate of educational opportunities.

Gamma Iota Sigma is the pipeline to the industry’s future! Through our programming and membership, we are positioned as the ultimate talent catalyst, and the Annual International Conference is our hallmark program to connect our members to the insurance industry. Come and be inspired! Help us bridge the approaching talent gap by supporting our remarkable students’ passion! We look forward to partnering with you.
