Quebec City Life Spring Meeting: Session 35–Education and Research Section Continental Breakfast: Review of Section Activities

By Steve Craighead

 

On the morning of June 17, the Education and Research Section sponsored an open breakfast for both members and nonmembers of our section. About 15 individuals attended and I gave a brief outline of various areas of interest being examined by the Section Council. For example, I talked about the new approach that is being taken regarding the Halmstad Prize. Stuart Klugman also spoke regarding the E–learning Modules that have been implemented at the SOA and there were discussions around continuing education requirements, as well as other various topics regarding the interaction of the SOA and various University Actuarial Programs in the United States and Canada.
