Learn about the Drake Symposium on Insurance, the premier student actuarial conference hosted in Des Moines, Iowa on April 12-14, 2019.
What is it?
The Drake Symposium is a three-day event focused on developing future actuaries through stimulating discussions on current industry topics and networking events.
Friday evening will consist of a networking event hosted by Coaching Actuaries where students will be able to network with both visiting students and professionals who will be at the conference.
On Saturday, students will attend breakout speaker sessions covering a wide variety of topics from the insurance industry. Students will also convene for keynote speakers at both lunch and dinner, sponsored by the Casualty Actuarial Society and the Society of Actuaries, respectively.
Students will also have the chance to present to the case competition board with prize money available for the top few teams! This will help hone both the participants analytical and presentation skills, further developing them for an actuarial role in the future.
The last day will consist of another networking opportunity to connect with both visiting students and Drake University students, wrapping up by midday.
Who is it for?

Students may see if their local actuarial club or Gamma Iota Sigma chapter have members to send, helping reduce costs. Students can also register individually.
