Non-Executive Directors’ member interest groups

Non-executive directors’ (NED) networking event
Almost 100 actuaries have now joined the new ‘Non-executive director member interest group’ (NED MIG) — both those who are already NEDs and those who aspire to such roles. An initial networking evening is being organised for the late autumn, with speakers from within and outside the profession on the changing expectations of the NED role and on how actuaries can equip themselves to be seen as valuable NED candidates. To register your interest for the event, or to join the NEDs Group, email craig.ajimuda@actuaries.org.uk

Sole Practitioners/Small Firms member interest group
The Sole Practitioners interest group is up and running. The group had its initial meeting on 19 July, which generated great interest. The group comprises of actuaries who are established as sole practitioners/smaller firms, and its purpose is to:
• Provide a platform for sole practitioners and smaller firms to network and share common interests, issues and opportunities
• To raise awareness of issues facing sole practitioners and smaller firms
• Act as an informal representative body working with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and external bodies to address concerns of sole practitioners and small firms.
Interested actuaries can join the group and get on the mailing list by emailing craig.ajimuda@actuaries.org.uk

Microinsurance member interest group
The microinsurance working party has established a member interest group to further actuarial learning and involvement in the field of microinsurance. The group’s objective is to facilitate a better understanding of the challenges and successes of this area of work, and to promote how actuaries can apply their skills to help in the development of microinsurance. The group meets on a regular basis and a series of informal talks on microinsurance related topics are regularly organised by the working party. Interested actuaries can join the group and be included on the mailing list by emailing craig.ajimuda@actuaries.org.uk
