Professionalism Outreach, February 2016

February 19, 2016
Academy President Tom Wildsmith addressed students in Columbia University’s actuarial science master’s program on Tuesday for its Proseminar Series, which is designed to “bridge the gap between academia and today’s actuarial science industry.” Wildsmith’s presentation on “Professionalism and the Aspiring Actuary” provided the audience of 100 with a compelling account of the broad societal impact of the U.S. actuarial profession’s work and how the Academy historically has articulated, and continues to articulate, the consequent professional responsibilities of actuaries with regard to the public, employers, clients, and others.
