The 1000th Tweet

After almost three years on Twitter, the CIA made its 1,000th English tweet on December 17, 2015, which highlighted some social media savvy #actuaries.


The CIA uses Twitter to keep members informed of industry trends/reports and CIA events. It also helps to reach employers, policymakers, and the general public to educate them on the actuarial field and highlight the benefits of working with actuaries. "A growing number of CIA members are engaging with us on Twitter," says Kelly Fry, CIA manager, marketing. "Ensuring there is value to our followers in our tweets is critical to engagement."

As of the date of publication, the CIA had over 2,000 followers from around the world, including actuaries, pension lawyers, risk management specialists, university math departments, media, and a variety of corporations in the finance and insurance fields.

Going forward, Fry would like to see more members engage on Twitter and our other social media channels. "Promoting the great work that actuaries are doing by tweeting about trends and issues affecting the financial security of Canadians is of the utmost importance," she says.
