In August, over 85 CIA and Actuarial Students’ National Association (ASNA) members attended the sold-out 5 à 7, held at the Pointe-à-Callière Youville Pumping Station in Montréal.  

Students and actuaries exchange ideas.

Exploring the Ins and Outs of a Practising Actuary’s Working Life

The joint CIA-ASNA event featured a series of TED-style talks that encouraged lively discussions and debate among the event’s attendees.

“It was a nice way to exchange with future actuaries,” says Martin Forget, president of Le Maître de l'Assurance.

Highlights included the following: how to strategically challenge the status quo and thrive, the pros and cons of driving technology-enabled change at a large organization, the importance of first impressions, and how to look beyond the traditional actuarial track to build a successful career.

To cap off the night, attendees toured the Building Montréal exhibition—an exciting opportunity to step into the city’s distant past and view the remarkable architectural remains displayed in situ.

An Unforgettable Experience for All

 “The second annual event was well received by both ASNA and CIA members and many suggestions and ideas were generated for future editions,” says Alicia Rollo, CIA director, education and international affairs. “We hope that even greater numbers of students and members will join us next year.”

The Institute and ASNA thank the speakers from Munich Re New Ventures, Manulife, Miclette Actuarial Consulting, RGA, and Willis Towers Watson for their contribution to making this year’s event a success.
