Our mission is to provide women insurance professionals with opportunities for professional development and assistance in advancing their careers. Our members include women and men from insurance carriers, reinsurers, brokers and agencies, law firms and consultants with insurance related companies. We now have two categories of membership - Members who are successful insurance professionals with at least three years of experience in the insurance business and Associate Members who have been in the insurance industry for under 3 years.
APIW provides our members with educational and networking opportunities to encourage their continued success and development. Further, we support universities which focus on women seeking degrees in risk management fields, thus ensuring the continued vibrancy of talent for insurance companies. Creating a bright future for insurance with the women leaders of today & tomorrow.
Connecting People and Resources
Networking is important. Often, it’s who you know that helps the most. We sponsor varied programs for members to learn, network and share ideas. Our luncheon programs feature prominent insurance leaders and experts on key industry issues. Members receive discounted fees for APIW luncheons, enrichment programs, conferences and social events, including the annual golf outing.
We also provide networking events to encourage members to interact and network in a more informal and relaxed atmosphere. Programs focus on career development topics as well as social events. A secure members-only area provides on-line access to members-only Job Bank and individual member information. The online membership directory is a resource that provides access to a strong network of professional contacts.
APIW publishes a members-only newsletter, the Insider, which provides scholarly and practical information about the topics being featured at our monthly luncheons. The newsletter also showcases the activities of our members and our Networks and reports on the achievements of women in insurance.
Members (and non-members) can register for events on-line. The site also contains links to a wealth of resources – from industry sites to databases, special-interest conferences, and reference libraries.
The greatest benefit of membership comes from volunteering your time as a committee or board member.
