New CIA English Editor


The CIA is pleased to welcome Bonnie Robinson to the team as she takes on the role of English editor from Andrew Melvin, who is returning to the UK after five years with the Institute.

During his time with the CIA, Andrew worked to ensure that all CIA documents had a consistent, modern style. He managed Seeing Beyond Risk, a successor to our former Beyond Risk magazine. An exceptional editor and wordsmith, Andrew also used his considerable design skills to help create the new-look CIA website. His last major project with the CIA is the forthcoming commemorative book Canadian Institute of Actuaries: An Oral History 1965-2015. We are sorry to see Andrew go, but wish him the best of luck for the future.

Bonnie will be responsible for editing most of the CIA’s English-language communications materials, including the (e)Bulletin, Annual Report, the Annual Meeting proceedings, Seeing Beyond Risk, weekly announcements, seminar programs, and social media posts.

In the past, Bonnie worked as a senior technical writer and editor for a number of high tech companies, including Signiant and Nortel. She is also an experienced film and television producer. At Signiant, Bonnie oversaw the production of all of the company’s technical communications, including software documentation, online help, white papers, and training materials. She enjoys the challenge of communicating complex ideas as clearly and concisely as possible.

Bonnie’s eye for detail and dedication to effective communications will help the Institute maintain its high standards for publications.
