It’s National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

by Don Segal, SOA President 2010-2011

Don Segal Blog Photo On April 7, U.S. President Barack Obama issued a presidential proclamation for National Volunteer Appreciation Week (April 10-16, 2011). On behalf of the Society of Actuaries, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers for your dedication and hard work. You are part of 63 million Americans who volunteer, and the many more who volunteer worldwide. This week is an opportunity to celebrate all of the extraordinary things that you have accomplished for the SOA and for your profession. SOA volunteers provide expertise, help and leadership in education, professional development, research and many other efforts of our organization and the profession.

Volunteering can be a personally rewarding experience, and your efforts impact not only you, but your profession, candidates—the future of our profession, and the public.

Again, thank you for all of your help!

    Kelly, thank you for asking these critcial questions. And Pat, thank you for the reply. My question, as a follow up, to the above Q&A is this: is CAS going to further candidates’ understanding on the new Bloom’s Taxonomy by offering additional guidance? The two short articles published on this subject by CAS so far are brief. In my opinion, both has not adequately addressed what candidates shall expect from 2012 and future exams under the new direction, and more importantly how they shall better prepare themselves for the change. While it is helpful to know that CAS is diligently working on a smooth transition into the new approach, it would be more helpful for candidates to receive adequate communication and guidance on the changes that are coming.
