The Insurance Accounting & Systems Association (IASA) 2014 Annual Educational Conference and Business Show was held on November 20-21, 2014 in Newport, Rhode Island. The conference organizer graciously offered a complimentary student admission to Barney School of Business student Anna Pan, a senior majoring in accounting and minoring in actuarial science. The R.C. Knox Insurance Center of the Barney School of Business provided financial support to cover Anna’s transportation and lodging cost.
What did Anna, who graduated in December 2014, think about the conference?
“I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Barney School of Business for allowing me to attend this conference with your financial assistance. It was an incredible experience and an invaluable opportunity to learn and network with industry professionals. After graduating, I hope to make the most of the skills and knowledge I have learned from the amazing faculty at the Barney School and through opportunities such as this conference. Thank you very much!”
This spring Anna will begin her actuarial career with The Hartford Financial Services Group in their Property & Casualty Actuarial Program.
