TIME TO VOTE!
Don’t worry, this is not a political ad for the November elections.
The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) voting opened this week. Eligible persons can vote for the President Elect, Board of Director candidates and an amendment allowing five-year Associates to vote in elections for the President Elect and Board of Directors. I am honored to be one of the eight great persons nominated as a candidate for the Board of Directors.
Many will recognize my name as the co-author of “Basic Ratemaking“ which they had to read for the exam process. While my early years were focused on basic pricing, most of my career has been focused on innovation and pushing evolving practice areas both inside and outside the insurance industry on a global basis.
During my career, I worked as an insurance company actuary, a consultant in both a boutique and large consulting firm, an executive in a non-actuarial role and am now working as a sole practitioner. These experiences provide broad perspective enabling me to serve our members and candidates and better understand the needs of current and prospective employers here and abroad.
My main emphasis will be leveraging my background to ensure CAS members and candidates are both 1) prepared to analyze data to solve real world business issues and 2) recognized globally as thought leaders. As I mentioned in the CAS questionnaire, I think that will require very tactical actions by each of the CAS verticals. Giving the increased importance of data-driven decisions, this is our chance! If we do this right, our candidates and members will have more opportunities than ever.
If you want to see more information or any of the other candidates, please go to this link on the CAS website: https://www.casact.org/about/leadership/elections/2020/index.cfm?fa=meet
If you are eligible, PLEASE VOTE! If you vote for me, I promise that I have the time and energy to dedicate to this important position and will always be happy to listen to the perspectives of the people I will be serving.
