The Actuaries Institute continues to promote greater diversity and inclusion. One of the ways this can be achieved is through the Young Actuaries Advisory Board (YAAB) - a forum for Council to hear from young members directly.
This structured young members' body will also allow collaboration between members located in different states and overseas, thus increasing engagement amongst younger members both local and abroad.
Thank you to the members who submitted an expression of interest in joining the YAAB. The level of interest in being involved, and the calibre of younger members who expressed interest was outstanding.
The Presidential Committee also decided that, for this year only, the leader of the YAAB would be appointed rather than elected, so that the board can be functional as soon as possible.
