Along with Matt, I wish to say well done to everyone who has just qualified. He and I visited Singapore and Malaysia at the end of last year and had the privilege of meeting some of our new qualifiers there.
I am often asked, ‘What is the point of the IFoA?’ I usually reply that our role is to enable our members and future members to have professionally and personally rewarding careers and to feel part of a professional community that is making a difference.
This month marks the turn of our sessional year, with the AGM, our change of president and new Council appointments. It’s a time for looking back and looking forward, as well as an important checkpoint, demonstrating our accountability to our members.
