The Symposium

April 9, 2021

The Drake Symposium focuses on insurance and actuarial science. Hosted by the Chi Chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma at Drake University, the event brings together students from across the country to engage the industry and further their education. Additionally, there is a case competition that provides students an opportunity to perform real, actuarial work and present to a panel of judges during the Symposium. The event is sponsored by the Casualty Actuarial Society, the Society of Actuaries, Sammons Financial Group, and is generously supported by the Drake University School of Actuarial Science and Risk Management.
