IAHU Annual Symposium

Join us June 12-13, 2019 at the Gateway Hotel & Conference Center - Ames, IA

Letter from the Seminar Chair

Think The Beatles. 1960s. Turbulent Times. Let's Revisit the Best of The Beatles in 2019 with a Health Insurance Twist!

 This year, your IAHU Board came up with a fun and energetic theme for the Symposium. Is there really anything that brings us together more than music?

The messaging in so many of the Beatles songs really speaks to us.  Despite uncertainty and volatility in the healthcare and insurance marketplace, we are a resourceful group of benefits professionals determined to make our way through the turbulent times. We have the ability to stay positive and find solutions for clients despite the marketplace challenges and issues that we all face.

After all, “We can work it out. We can work it out!!”

Early Bird Registration Available Until May 10, 2019! Register now before prices increase by $60!

Early Bird Member Price - $229
Early Bird Non-Member Price - $279

IAHU Sponsors

Become an IAHU Sponsor

We've recently reworked our sponsorship options! Consider a gold, silver or bronze IAHU ANNUAL sponsor membership. All three tiers include various numbers of registrations to the IAHU Symposium AND recognition opportunities not only at the IAHU Symposium, but at other Association meetings & events throughout the year. These are a great value that your company will benefit from with recognition year round.

There are also "a la carte" options available in support of the annual IAHU Healthcare Symposium if your company is interested in other opportunities, such as contributing toward the keynote speaker, breakfast or lunch sponsor, attendee gifts, entertainment and more. If you'd like to have a conversation about some of those prices, please use the button to the right to contact an IAHU staff member.

Additionally, thank you to all of the companies listed below for their support of IAHU this year. We greatly appreciate it!
