The Society of Insurance Research is the only professional organization of its kind focused on the unique needs of practitioners in all areas of insurance research. The Society provides our Members a unique forum in which to be forward thinking and to learn and share cutting edge of developments in research and insurance.

This is accomplished principally through:

  • Networking opportunities provided by SIR conferences and educational classes and through the Member directory and skills matrix in the Members-only section of the Society's web site.
  • Presentations and discussion at SIR conferences and events.
  • Access to conference presentations and other material, including original research by the SIR, individual or corporate SIR Members, or partnering organizations.
