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, diversity and inclusion sessions presented by our GammaS.A.I.D Council, 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.
