Candidate Biographical Sketch

Annie Brown Voldman is a consulting actuary in South Burlington, Vt.  She has over 25 years of practice as an Enrolled Actuary and has been the owner of her own consulting business since 1994, specializing in pension and OPEB valuations for small groups.  She has been a member of the Academy since 1987, a Special Director (2009-2011), has served on various committees, and is currently a member of the Committee on Qualifications.  Annie is a past president of ASPPA College of Pension Actuaries (ACOPA) and is currently a member of the ACOPA Leadership Council. 

Why I want to serve on the American Academy of Actuaries’ Board of Directors

As an actuary with many years of practice experience in the small group area, I have had to develop and rely on networking with other actuaries and the resources of the professional organizations to which I belong.  The Academy brings together actuaries from all practice areas, serving both the needs of our profession and providing much-needed input on actuarial areas of public concern, many of which are now at the forefront of public discussion — health care reform, Social Security, Medicare and climate change.  Service on the Academy board provides a unique opportunity to participate in many of these issues and I would be honored to have that responsibility.

What I believe are the most important issues facing the American Academy of Actuaries

The Academy is perceived by many as the public voice of the profession, providing an actuarial perspective on many of the economic challenges of our time and assisting members of the public with implementation of change (e.g., health care reform).  The profession has challenges from within, including emerging practice areas, meaningful discipline and how standards are developed in light of the changing practice environment.  As change evolves both within and outside the profession, the Academy will need to remain strong in its capacity as the umbrella organization for the profession, continuing to bring actuaries together from all practice areas to fulfill its mission.
