Hello and welcome to The Insurance and Actuarial Society of Glasgow website.
The IASG represents the needs of over 3000 Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) Members in Glasgow and I am honoured to take over as the President and as temporary custodian of an organisation which has been running for over 130 years.
Throughout the year we run a number of educational seminars around both technical and business related issues, as well as hosting various social and networking events, including our Annual Dinner which this year is on Friday 29 November at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.
The IASG is in fantastic shape at the moment. Our membership spans every aspect of this modern insurance age and this is reflected in our Council members from Underwriters to Brokers, from Lecturers to Financial Advisers and not forgetting our Loss Adjusting community.
During my year in office I would like to make sure that the hard work of my predecessors is maintained, and I have my own objectives to achieve:-
• Firstly I would like to extend our links with the Financial Services employers in the Glasgow market highlighting the benefits of CII membership to their employees and the value of them attending our technical and networking events.
• I would also like to develop a network of advocates beyond Council, who actively promote and highlight IASG offerings.
• Finally I would like to explore social media for our Members – developing a ‘LinkedIn’ page for the IASG, allowing us to become more accessible to a new, possibly younger (!), audience.
If there is anything you want to see IASG provide then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
I look forward to seeing you at some of our future events.
Elaine Barclay, President
