SIFM is the only peer network organization dedicated to the advancement of insurance financial management professionals – offering an effective and efficient means for industry professionals to remain up-to-date with a constantly changing industry.
A recent survey of our members shows that the SIFM Quarterly Conference is one of the best, most effective conferences in the Metro NY area. Essentially, members found up-to-the-minute data, fresh perspectives and emerging issues affecting the sector.
SIFM members are invited to become members by peers, mentors or bosses. They have found it to be a worthwhile organization as evidenced by the fact that about 45% have been members for 10+ years.
I have been actively involved with the SIFM for over 20 years and continue to learn about the industry from attending sessions, as well as from interacting with other members and the leadership body of the organization. The SIFM is a cost effective way to earn 75% of the CPE credits needed on an annual basis.
