Yorkshire actuarial society goes big

13 APRIL 2017 | BY TESS JOYCE

As one of the most active regional communities, the Yorkshire Actuarial Society (YAS) always holds an excellent programme of one-hour technical and professional events each year, as well as an annual dinner, all of which are well attended.

This year, in addition to its normal programme, YAS is having two ‘Big Events’, each lasting three hours, in York and Leeds. The York event took place on 1 March and the Leeds one will take place in May.

Each consists of two talks, a refreshment break, a third talk and finishes with a drinks reception to allow the attendees to network.

Malcolm Slee, secretary of YAS, commented: “Our society has over 400 active members, and the new £5 subsidy provided by the IFoA has provided the funds to enable us to develop these fantastic mini-conferences, enhancing our existing programme considerably. We have members throughout Yorkshire, not just York and Leeds, and a three-hour event is a welcome addition when travelling for a one-hour CPD session would just not be viable.”
