Pack your bag and your phone for the Academy’s 2017 Annual Meeting.

2017 Annual Meeting and Public Policy Forum

Dear Colleague,

I look forward to seeing you at next week’s 2017 Annual Meeting and Public Policy Forum. I know you will enjoy the program, as it is packed with top-notch presentations and thought-provoking panels. There will be multiple opportunities for networking and meeting your peers from across the county. I am convinced that you will leave the meeting feeling energized and professionally stimulated.

Remember that you can use this meeting to help support The Actuarial Foundation by participating in the Academy’s new Upcycling program. We will have a bin and charitable donation forms available. While we will accept other phones and items, the ones with the most upcycle value are:

  • iPhones: 6, 6S, 7, 7S, and 8
  • Samsung Galaxy: S6, S7, and S8, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S8 Plus
  • LG: G6, V30, and V20
  • Motorola: E4, G5, and Z2 Play

Before donating, it is important that you remove any password protection and disconnect from your cloud account. If this isn’t done, the device can only be recycled, not upcycled, and the value of the device will be minimal. Click for further instruction on how to do this for your iPhone or Android. Or, bring the device with you to the Annual Meeting, and an Academy staff member will help you complete this step.

I am looking forward to welcoming you in person next week.

Bob Beuerlein
