We are looking for volunteers to help at a number of school sessions we will be running in 2014 (dates TBC), where volunteers will speak about their own experience on the path to becoming an actuary. If you are interested in helping out at one of the upcoming workshops please email Mark and Katie at

Go Green with The Actuary | 28 February 2014: 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.

Calling all speakers!: SIAS are looking for presenters for the 2014 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
