Message From Academy President D. Joeff Williams
I’m sure that all of you are aware of and concerned about the consequences of this extraordinary period of uncertainty as a result of COVID-19. I want you to know that the American Academy of Actuaries is continuing to provide objective and independent analysis to all those with whom we work at the local, national, and international level, as you will see in our new webpage on COVID-19 information resources, described more below. As many people shift to virtual or remote platforms, the Academy’s staff and volunteers are also doing so while continuing to work together as we always have done to remain available to our members and other stakeholders. We will do our best to continue to disseminate relevant and useful information to you—not just on COVID-19, but on all of our public policy and professionalism work.
I also want to remind you that, with the announcements we have all seen of the necessary cancellation of many larger in-person events, live webinars that include the opportunity for Q&As are an excellent source for obtaining the “organized activity” continuing education (CE) credit that you may need this year. Academy webinars continue to be a viable source for CE. Academy webinars are also archived and available without charge to members after the live event and provide another opportunity, if you are working remotely, to gain CE that meets the requirements of the U.S. Qualification Standards under the “other activities” category.
