The professional society committed to excellence in insurance regulation and your network of knowledge for insurance regulation.
2020 Career Development Seminar (CDS)
The Insurance Regulatory Examiners Society’s (IRES) Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2020 Career Development Seminar (CDS). This decision was made to ensure the personal safety of all our members while allowing our members to focus their resources on COVID-19 issues in their individual states.
At this time, we are investigating the feasibility of offering CDS through remote options. When information is available, you will receive additional communications with the details.
We appreciate the IRES membership and look forward to meeting again in person in 2021.
Thank you and stay safe.
Randy A. Helder, President
