About the Society of Insurance Research
The Society of Insurance Research was founded in 1970 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 Seminar each spring. Meeting sites are located throughout the United States.
The Society is engaged in an initiative to increase our service to and participation by individuals and companies working with health insurance. Please visit the Health Insurance Advisory Panel page to learn how you can get involved.
