Faculty and FASS welcome new student members

The Faculty of Actuaries and the Faculty of Actuaries Students’ Society (FASS) welcome day took place at Merchants’ Hall, Edinburgh on 22 October. This event was aimed at new student members to give them the chance to meet with key figures within the Profession and find out about the experiences of current students.

Susan Vaughan, president of FASS, introduced the day, followed by Richard Maconachie, Faculty secretary and head of regulation, who gave an introduction to the Profession. Trevor Watkins, head of learning, followed with an overview of the qualification system. Staff actuaries Georgina Warren and Sally Calder talked about work-based skills and paper marking. The day concluded with a question-and-answer session.
