Today's Practitioners Looking Into Tomorrow

For more than 50 years, the Society of Insurance Research (SIR) has been providing our Members a unique forum to be forward thinking, to network with other insurance professionals, and to learn and share cutting edge developments in research and insurance.

The Society provides these opportunities through its Annual Conference and through its Research Workshops Summit as well as through the members only website and members only roundtables.

The SIR is a family of hands-on practitioners from organizations that range from the giant international carriers, to regional and specialty writers, to service providers of every size.

About the Society of Insurance Research

The Society of Insurance Research was founded in 1970 as a 501.c.6 non-profit organization to provide a forum for the free exchange of ideas in all areas of insurance research. It has expanded to marketing and planning, as well as research. The Society includes representation from many different organizations; insurance and non-insurance companies, government agencies, institutions of higher education, and trade associations. The individual Members come from equally divergent areas such as actuarial, agency, claims, consumer relations, corporate planning, education, financial planning, government relations, management consulting, information services, marketing and sales, modeling, operations, product development and analysis, reinsurance, risk management, statistical research and underwriting. Providing regular and valuable communications between these individuals and organizations is a major purpose of the Society.

The activities of SIR are intended to provide opportunities to discuss current issues with fellow researchers and planners. These activities include an Annual Conference each fall and a Research Workshop each spring. Meeting sites are located throughout the United States. Our Annual Conference has educational breakouts for the following: Commercial Lines, Personal Lines, Life & Health, CX/Consumer Insights, Research Function/CI, and Data/Innovation.

“Being a part of the SIR board as the VP of the DEI committee has been transformative, expanding my understanding of diversity issues within Insurance and fostering connections with individuals from diverse backgrounds. It has empowered me to advocate for underrepresented voices and contribute to positive change within my organization and community. This experience has enriched my personal and professional growth, equipping me with valuable skills and a deeper appreciation for the importance of inclusivity in creating a more equitable society.”
