President's Update

The CIA’s April Board meeting took place shortly before this issue’s publication deadline, so there is no video update this month. It will appear on the CIA website in mid-May.

From cyber risk to behavioural impacts on mortality, the 2016 Annual Meeting has continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for every practice area.
 
Social Media and the CIA
Students and young actuaries are the future of the actuarial profession in Canada. Fostering connections with them is part of the CIA’s outreach work.
 
Spotlight on New Fellows
This feature gives new CIA members an opportunity to tell their peers about themselves via the answers to a number of straightforward and fun questions. The questionnaire is a way of temporarily turning the focus away from the day-to-day work of actuarial science and more towards the new members who make up the profession.
