Letter from the Symposium Chair

MARCIE STROUSEPresident-Elect, Symposium

On behalf of the IAHU Board of Directors, thank you for your registration to this event, and for your ongoing and continued support of our professional association. Taking an active role with IAHU makes you among the top 10% in our industry!  

As we emerge from the COVID Pandemic, we are excited to offer this year’s symposium live and in-person.  Over the day and a half event you will have the opportunity to connect with colleagues from across the industry and learn valuable information related to how to effectively run your business, carrier and vendor updates, and current legislative actions that will impact the industry and your clients.  But we won’t stop there.  In addition to the live event, we will be offering additional continuing education credits through virtual breakout sessions in the weeks after the symposium.  This will provide an opportunity for those that may not be able to break away from the office to attend in-person, or for those who may not feel comfortable yet attending live events. 

We look forward to seeing you in-person in April.  Thank you for your continued support of the Iowa Association of Health Underwriters.

Marcie Strouse

Symposium Sponsor Opportunities

Consider Supporting IAHU becoming a platinum, gold, silver or bronze annual sponsor! All 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.

Thank you to all of our 2022 Sponsors for their support in the past year. We greatly appreciate it!
