American Risk and Insurance Association (ARIA)

  • Description
  • We are the pre­mier pro­fes­sional asso­ci­a­tion of insur­ance schol­ars and other thought­ful risk man­age­ment and insur­ance pro­fes­sion­als. Through ARIA , mem­bers receive many valu­able tools and oppor­tu­ni­ties for enlight­en­ment, growth and edu­ca­tion. Con­fer­ences, research papers, and recog­ni­tion com­bine to make ARIA well worth joining.

    Founded in 1932, the association’s mem­ber­ship is com­prised of aca­d­e­mics, indi­vid­ual insur­ance indus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives, stu­dents, and retirees. ARI­Aem­pha­sizes research rel­e­vant to the oper­a­tional con­cerns and func­tions of insur­ance pro­fes­sion­als, and pro­vides resources, infor­ma­tion and sup­port on impor­tant insur­ance issues. Our goals also include the expan­sion and improve­ment of aca­d­e­mic instruc­tion to stu­dents of risk man­age­ment and insurance.

    ARIA ‘s abil­ity to pro­vide net­work­ing, infor­ma­tion, and sup­port on impor­tant insur­ance issues makes it a valu­able orga­ni­za­tion to its mem­bers. Those pro­vi­sions come from a vari­ety of awards, pub­li­ca­tions, and con­fer­ences, includ­ing The Jour­nal of Risk and Insur­ance, Risk Man­age­ment and Insur­ance Review, ARIA’s Annual Meet­ing, and the annual Risk The­ory Sem­i­nar.


    ARIA is ded­i­cated to advanc­ing knowl­edge in Risk Man­age­ment and Insur­ance and enhanc­ing the career devel­op­ment of its members.


    As an asso­ci­a­tion of schol­ars in the field of risk man­age­ment and insur­ance, ARIA will strive to be a lead­ing advo­cate for risk man­age­ment and insur­ance research and edu­ca­tion by:

    • Pro­vid­ing rec­og­nized intel­lec­tual lead­er­ship in risk man­age­ment and insur­ance, includ­ing pre­mier jour­nals in the field.
    • Sup­port­ing the intel­lec­tual growth and pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment of our mem­bers and fos­ter­ing rela­tion­ships among members.
    • Recruit­ing and devel­op­ing new tal­ent in the field of risk man­age­ment and insurance
    • Nur­tur­ing rela­tion­ships with indus­try, con­sumers, and pol­i­cy­mak­ers; and
    • Fos­ter­ing rela­tion­ships with other orga­ni­za­tions, includ­ing inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tions devoted to edu­ca­tion and research in risk man­age­ment and insurance


    ARIA will be the most widely rec­og­nized and highly respected Risk Man­age­ment and Insur­ance aca­d­e­mic orga­ni­za­tion in the world by pro­vid­ing pro­grams, awards, and ser­vices that expand Risk Man­age­ment and Insur­ance knowl­edge, improve aca­d­e­mic instruc­tion, and posi­tion its mem­bers for success.
