Editor's Note

By Mark Maxwell

I want to thank the dedicated contributors for the contents of this spring 2012 issue of Expanding Horizons. Many of the articles are in the form of announcements reporting education and research activities to section membership. We want to encourage articles from you. Are you involved in some interesting activity from which others might benefit (like the collaboration of Northeast Ohio schools about which Tom Wakefield writes)? What are your thoughts on the examination process or Centers of Actuarial Excellence (a current active discussion on the E&R LinkedIn group)? What suggestions do you have for the section leadership or membership? We welcome your comments, suggestions or job postings to expandinghorizonseditor@soa.org.
