43rd Annual International Conference
“Industry Legends: Past, Present and Future”

Dallas, Texas
October 2-4, 2014

Gamma Iota Sigma is a talent catalyst, and the Annual International Conference is our hallmark program to connect our accomplished students to the insurance industry. Through your sponsorship, you can directly impact the future of our industry and support the educational and professional development of our students. Conference sponsorship is our primary source of funding, which:

  • offsets more than 70% of the cost for each of the 400+ student attendees, and
  • supports our year-round programming delivered to over 2100 student members.

The Annual International Conference is the premier event to meet and recruit top talent from throughout North America. Gamma Iota Sigma boasts the best and brightest students preparing for careers in insurance – we invite you to come and meet them!


Exposure to Top Talent

Our students have aspirations to be risk managers, actuaries, underwriters, brokers, consultants, agents and more in all areas of the insurance, risk management, and actuarial science industries. They look to the Conference as a forum to learn about different companies and organizations, career paths and opportunities, and industry sectors and trends, as well as interface directly with industry representatives and supporters. The majority of attendees will be graduating seniors looking for full-time positions for January 2015 and May 2015, along with students seeking internships for the summer of 2015.

Participation Benefits

Gamma Iota Sigma’s students are the future leaders of the insurance industry – help us bridge the approaching talent gap by supporting their passion. We will highlight your sponsorship on our website and in our printed conference material. There are also several opportunities that allow you to access our students directly at the conference by exhibiting in the career fair, leading an educational session, or conducting on-site first-round interviews, plus discounted access to the GIS Career Center. Find a sponsorship package that’s right for you!


Whether or not you attend the conference in person, your sponsorship impacts our students and helps GIS to continue delivering resources that prepare them for their careers. Our students benefit from your support of their academic and professional pursuits as they develop into the industry professional that will one day work at your organization. We look forward to partnering with you!
