IASA has announced the call for papers for the 2010 annual educational conference is now open. The association will accept submissions to be evaluated for possible inclusion in the educational offerings at the 2010 IASA Annual Educational Conference & Business Show.

The 2010 IASA Annual Educational Conference & Business Show will be held in Dallas from June 6 to 9. This event attracts more than 2,000 technology and financial services professionals who work for or are affiliated with the insurance industry. IASA 2010 will provide educational sessions for attendees in three main categories: Accounting, Risk Management & Finance; Technology; and Career Skills Development.

IASA strives to enhance the knowledge of insurance industry professionals and participants from similar organizations closely allied with the insurance industry by facilitating the exchange of ideas and information. As a result, the goal for these presentations is to provide attendees with an opportunity to learn by sharing real-life examples from leaders within the insurance and financial services industry. Submissions must include participation from insurance company professionals to be considered for inclusion in the 2010 program.

The following details must be included with each submission: presentation title; session abstract; learning benefits for attendees; target audience and program level; and contact information.

Submissions that are selected for inclusion will be announced in November of this year to give all scheduled presenters time to prepare for the 2010 Dallas event.
