Open call for the SOA Nominating Committee – are you interested?
by Anne Button, Vice Chair, SOA Nominating Committee
The SOA has rolled out a series of communications to make sure that members are aware of the major efforts surrounding the SOA’s nominations process. I’m happy to be a part of this initiative as it will give us many opportunities to share information on the system used to identify and select future leaders.
I wanted to call attention to the fact that the SOA recently announced its first open call for the Nominating Committee. Here’s a great opportunity if you’re interested in being considered to be on the committee that identifies and selects Fellows who will help shape the future of the SOA and the actuarial profession.
If you’d like to know more, read the Nominating Committee Member job description. You’ll learn about the required skills, time commitment and responsibilities. Apply for a Nominating Committee position now and help determine the strongest candidates for SOA leadership roles.
I hope you’ll give participation in this new endeavor some serious thought. In the meantime, be informed. Read the communications the SOA is sending about the nominations process and related nominations information. A variety of communication channels are being used to inform members, including SOA News Today, LinkedIn, the SOA Blog and video.
The SOA welcomes member comments and plans to develop an ongoing Q & A communication based on that feedback. Share comments. Express opinions. Ask questions. Correspondence may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through these frequent exchanges, we will all have a more complete understanding of the SOA nominations process.
