Help Shape Your Profession: Volunteer!

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

More recruits are needed to join the Member Listening Group (MLG) and deliver their opinions on topics of importance to the CIA Board, Head Office, councils, and committees via short online surveys.

The group has already helped in the development of various projects, and is seeking extra volunteers to ensure that the views of the broadest spectrum of members are represented. Only a small time commitment is required, and we encourage you to click on the link and sign up today.

This link will take you to an English survey form. In the upper right corner, there is a selection box where you can choose to work on the English or French version.

The MLG is one of only dozens of groups CIA members can join in order to help guide the profession through the many challenges facing actuaries today. The Institute has councils, committees, task forces, designated groups, and other bodies covering every aspect of actuarial work and every practice area. New volunteers are always needed to bring fresh ideas and perspectives, and the Institute's leadership encourages each member to consider what skills they could offer and how their experience and knowledge might benefit their peers.

Volunteering can help you in many ways, including:

  • Gaining insight into emerging issues;
  • Building connections;
  • Improving your public image;
  • Learning how to motivate others and deal with difficult situations;
  • Developing your teamwork and time management skills;
  • Increasing your job satisfaction, attitude, and morale; and
  • Improving your sense of self-worth.
