Career Development Seminar (CDS)
Every year, IRES hosts a Career Development Seminar and Regulatory Skills Workshop (CDS). This 2 ½ day series of workshops and panels is the Society’s premier professional development activity, covering a broad range of topics and issues pertinent to insurance regulation. CDS also provides an excellent opportunity to network with regulators and insurance industry professionals.
In addition to keynote speakers, the CDS provides breakout sessions geared to those who work in many different areas of insurance regulation, such as consumer services, financial solvency, market regulation, producer licensing, and enforcement & compliance areas. The CDS also offers general sessions surrounding current hot topics and issues for life, health, and property &; casualty insurance, as well as sessions discussing issues that span multiple insurance regulatory disciplines.
The Insurance Regulatory Examiners Society (IRES) is an association of professional insurance regulators dedicated to consumer protection. IRES helps to promote fair, cost-effective, and efficient insurance regulation by ensuring professionalism and integrity among the individuals who serve state and federal insurance regulatory bodies.
