Nominations for IFoA Honorary Fellowships and for the Gold and Finlaison medals are now being sought. The closing date is 19 December.
Now is your chance to nominate a modern-day figure to follow in the footsteps of Charles Babbage and become an Honorary Fellow, or to put them forward for a Gold or Finlaison medal
Members are invited to nominate for an Honorary Fellowship candidates who have made a significant contribution to the profession, and who have an active and ongoing involvement with the IFoA. Notable Honorary Fellows include former parliamentary commissioner for standards Sir Phillip Mawer and economist Sir Andrew Dilnot and, stepping back into the mists of time, eminent persons such as computer science pioneer Charles Babbage and medical statistician William Farr.

Gold and Finlaison medals
The IFoA is also seeking nominations for the Gold and Finlaison medals. The Gold Medal has been awarded to IFoA members in recognition of work "which is of pre-eminent importance, either in originality, content or consequence, in the actuarial field" since 1919 and it is our most prestigious and long-established award. The Finlaison medal was first awarded in 1985, and recognises services to the actuarial profession, in furtherance of the objectives set out in our Royal Charter: " in the public interest, the advance of all matters relevant to actuarial science, and to regulate and promote the actuarial profession".
