Professionalism webinar: Keeping Up Internationally—The IAA, Model International Standards, and the U.S. Actuary

December 15, 2011
12:00-1:30 p.m. Eastern

What influence does the International Actuarial Association (IAA) have on you as a U.S.-based actuary? More than you think. The Academy’s Council on Professionalism presented a webinar about the IAA’s role and how its activities may affect you.
The IAA—a worldwide association of professional actuarial associations—has many committees, with members from around the globe, that address actuarial issues similar to those of concern and interest to U.S. actuaries. As the global economy affects our own economy and progress, actuaries—regardless of where they live—need to keep up with current international events and stay informed about proposed changes that may affect how they approach their U.S. practice.

In this webinar, attendees learned about:
  • IAA’s structure and its role in the U.S. profession
  • Activities of the IAA Professionalism Committee that affect your actuarial life—from both a company and/or consulting viewpoint
  • Activities in the development of “international standards” and how you can influence its development
This webinar was presented by the Academy's Council on Professionalism and co-sponsored by the SOA, CAS, CCA and ASPPA.
