Latest News:

Annual Dinner Menu & Last Call for Tickets: The Menu for our Annual Dinner event is now available to view here! Only a few tickets remain available for the event, so make sure that you get your booking form in to as soon as possible!

Calling all speakers!: SIAS are looking for presenters for the 2015 Programme schedule. Talks can cover traditional topics (e.g. pensions, insurance, investment) or broader topics & non-technical ideas from outside the Profession. This provides an excellent opportunity for members to share ideas and discuss the ‘hot topics’ of the day. We particularly encourage younger members to consider writing a paper and presenting their ideas. If you are interested please email!

SIAS 2014 Calendar: Click here to download the SIAS 2014 Calendar for quick reference to every programme talk and social event date this year.

Go Green with The Actuary: At SIAS we are offering our readers the choice to “go green” by opting to receive electronic copies of The Actuary Magazine, rather than printed copies. If this might suit you, please log into the member's area of the IFoA's website to update your preferences.
