IRUA LAUNCHES ITS STRATEGIC INITIATIVE CAMPAIGN

As we approach the 50th Anniversary of the organization in 2017 the Board is pleased to announce the start of its new Strategic Initiatives, which followed a high-level review aimed to enhance educational and networking services provided and add value to your membership. These include:

 - formal change in the acronym from "IRU" to "IRUA" which brings consistency with email and website addresses

- a new modern and dynamic logo and re-branding of all content and materials

- a totally redesigned and user-friendly website

- consolidation of internal committee structures to reflect our four core focus areas - Education; Scholars; Conference and Journal of Reinsurance

As this is a work in progress your patience is appreciated but it will all be worth it!!
