Academy Board Nominees Announced
The Nominating Committee reported on the slate of three individuals nominated to serve as regular directors on the Board, with three-year terms beginning in November. Candidacies for regular director candidates, who will begin their terms on the Board at the conclusion of the Academy’s annual meeting in November, will be open to be voted on by the membership in an online election later this summer.
The nominees to be regular directors, who will serve three-year terms, are:
- Dorothy Andrews, chairperson of the Data Science and Analytics Committee;
- Chris Carlson, a former Actuarial Standards Board member; and
- Annette James, chairperson of the Health Equity Work Group.
Dorothy Andrews, a member of RMFRC and chairperson of the Data Science and Analytics Committee, is also on the P/C Racial Equity Task Force, and is a past member of the Committee on Professional Responsibility and the Life and Health Valuation Law Manual Review Task Force.
Chris Carlson, a current regular director, is a former Actuarial Standards Board (ASB) member and ASB liaison to many Academy public policy committees, a member of the Casualty Practice Council—and a former special director by dint of his previous position as president of the Casualty Actuarial Society—and is nominated to serve a full three-year term after coming onto the Board last year to complete a vacated one-year term.
Annette James is a member of the Health Practice Council (HPC) and is chairperson of the Health Equity Work Group, which was formed last year. She has served on the ASB’s Health Committee, and many HPC committees and work groups, including the Health Practice International Committee.
The nominating process is designed to bring to the Board regular director candidates with an ability and willingness to serve the Academy, demonstrated by their prior volunteer service. The entire slate of new directors was chosen to provide a balanced distribution across practice areas and business affiliations in accordance with the Nominating Committee Guidelines.
