Candidate Biographical Sketch

Lauren currently serves as chairperson of the Academy’s Property and Casualty Risk-Based Capital Committee, and as co-chairperson of the joint P&C/Health Bond Factors Analysis Work Group. She is a member of the Casualty Practice Council, and previously served on the Mass Torts Subcommittee. She has participated in the Casualty Actuarial Society’s exam committee, and been a speaker at industry events.

The Academy’s mission is to serve the public and the U.S. actuarial profession. My service on the Board will allow me to further the Academy’s mission of public policy and professionalism by:
supporting the mission of providing objective, informative counsel to key decision makers affecting public policy. As regulators and policymakers are often approached with the interests of various groups, the Academy serves the public by providing objective analysis that key decision makers can rely on. I believe this mission is critical today as major changes in all four of our practice areas require changes in public policy. As a Board member, I look forward to encouraging volunteerism and empowering volunteers to take action on these issues as the need arises.
