Membership of IIK is recognized by your colleagues and clients, current or future employers and the community at large as evidence that you aren't just "in Insurance", but that you're a genuine Insurance professional. Being a member of a professional body carries a degree of respectability when applying for jobs or presenting credentials to potential clients.
