With great sadness we announce the passing of Curtis E. Huntington, who died peacefully on Oct. 7 in Ann Arbor, Mich. after a long, hard-fought battle with cancer. He was 71. Curtis was known and admired by many as an accomplished actuary who worked tirelessly to promote actuarial professionalism. He was a current board member of the Actuarial Board for Counseling and Discipline (ABCD), a member of the American Academy of Actuaries, a fellow of the Society of Actuaries, a fellow of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries, and an associated professional member of the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries. We will miss him and his many contributions to the profession. Watch video of Curtis accepting the 2012 Jarvis Farley Service Award. (October 10, 2013)

The Academy sent a letter to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners describing the many ways its mission aligns with regulators and their goals. The letter was sent in response to a request for comments to a discussion draft paper of the Joint Qualified Actuary (A/B/C) subgroup. As the home for actuarial professionalism, the Academy has long worked to serve both the public and the U.S. actuarial profession, describing this mission as “intended to support the objective of regulators to protect and assist the public.” (September 27, 2013)
