Actuaries Social Networking Group

Connect with other actuaries and expand your social and professional networks.

The Institute is committed to supporting its 4, 700 members living and working around the world, to connect and expand their social and professional networks. As such, the Institute is seeking enthusiastic actuaries for an organising committee to drive the initiatives of a new Social Networking Group.

The Group aims to bring actuaries together by creating an inclusive environment where all members (students, Associates, and Fellows) will be able to network and share ideas. The organising committee will be responsible for organising social networking events, like for example: coffee meetups, dinners and trivia nights.

The Institute will support this group by promoting these events to members via its digital communication platforms. The Institute encourages all members who are looking to develop their leadership skills to express their interest in leading and participating in this organising committee. Institute Council member Bill Konstantinidis is passionate about this initiative and will be supporting it closely.

If you are interested in joining, please email Committee & Volunteer Engagement Manager Lily Meszaros (Lily.Meszaros@actuaries.asn.au) by Friday, 22nd of July with your details and a brief cove note advising what you are hoping to achieve by joining this committee.

Register your interest for the 2017/18 Mentoring Program!

We are excited to announce the launch of the 2017/18 Mentoring Program. 

There is substantial evidence that mentoring can improve development skills of both mentors and mentees, allowing members to share advice, knowledge and experiences. These skills are particularly valuable as actuaries take on more senior roles in companies, whereas actuarial training traditionally tends to have a lesser focus on soft skills.

The program will continue to attempt to link mentors and mentees and provide advice, training and networking opportunities to help deliver maximum benefit for both parties.

Remember you can participate as both a mentor and a mentee by expressing interest for both.

Closing date: Friday 28 July 2017

Mentoring Information Session

This year, the Mentoring Working Group will be holding a Mentoring Information Session at the Institute (also available via webinar) on Tuesday 18 July. The session will comprise an interactive panel discussion by a selection of mentors and mentees who will share their personal experiences, a presentation of the survey findings of participants’ views on the program and reveal some exciting future development of the program.

If you are unsure about joining this year's intake, we encourage you to take this opportunity to find out how to make the most of the mentoring program and ask questions.
