IASA Brings 2012 Executive EDGE Conference to Atlanta, Georgia

Jeb Bush, Former Florida Governor, to Present This Year's Keynote Presentation

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwire - Jun 4, 2012) - IASA is pleased to announce former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will keynote the 5th Annual Executive EDGE Conference which will be held at the Westin Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia, September 30 - October 1, 2012.

Building on successful programs from past years, the highly-interactive EDGE program explores topics and issues facing insurance company C-level executives who lead finance, investment, technology, and operations functions. In 2012, EDGE attendees will be presented with a streamlined program which maximizes the value of time spent out of the office for executives with one power-packed day of content, and another dedicated to networking opportunities.

In addition to the education and networking opportunities available at this year's Executive EDGE Conference, IASA is pleased to have former Florida Governor Jeb Bush delivering a keynote presentation on the topic of "Leading in a Climate of Change." Bush's political and leadership experience should make his perspective particularly compelling for EDGE attendees during today's turbulent economic times as well as a heated election season. Bush's experience as an elected official includes his time as governor, as well as a term as Florida's secretary of commerce. He is the founder of the non-profit Foundation for Florida's Future, the co-author of "Profiles in Character," and the chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education. He has also worked in real estate development and today heads his own successful consulting business, Jeb Bush and Associates.

Sponsored this year by IBM, INSTEC, Insurity, ISCS, MajescoMastek and Vertafore, the 2012 EDGE program will be marked by a thought-provoking keynote presentation, industry expert presentations, panel discussions, as well as the popular breakouts focused on finance, investments and technology. All of these sessions take place within the established EDGE format of interactive participation, discussion, and networking. Conference attendees will earn nine (9) CPE credits, and will have the opportunity to take part in a sponsored golf outing.

IASA has arranged a special EDGE attendee hotel rate with the Westin Buckhead. Registration details for this event and further information about speakers, sponsorships and the program can be found online at the association's website at
