ASOC Seeks ASB Chair

The Actuarial Standards Board (ASB) is responsible for establishing, developing, and maintaining actuarial standards of practice in Canada. It is independent from the CIA and reports directly to the Actuarial Standards Oversight Council (ASOC).

The current chair of the ASB, Conrad Ferguson, will retire in June 2019, and the selection process for his successor is underway. The ASOC plans to select a new chair by December 2018, with a term commencing in July 1, 2019. To facilitate an orderly transition, it is anticipated that the successful candidate will become a member of the ASB effective January 2019.

The chair of the ASB works on a volunteer basis with reimbursement of all reasonable expenses. The position requires a significant time commitment: chairing all ASB meetings (6–8 per year) and coordinating the ASB’s strategic plans and activities. The chair also attends and reports at all ASOC meetings (3–4 per year) as an ex officio ASOC member.  

Fellows of the CIA who wish to be considered for this position (for a two-year term commencing July 1, 2019) should send their application and résumé to the CIA Executive Director, Michel Simard, no later than November 15, 2018
