The Glasgow Actuarial Students' Society (GASS) has been keeping busy this year with various events held so far and even more yet to come.
The year kicked off with the annual GASS dinner in November and as in previous years the new members of GASS were introduced to the society with some welcoming words as penned by their own colleagues.
GASS has also held a number of CPD events so far, including a talk from Sandy Trust of Grant Thornton on 'Climate change - a classic risk management problem' and from Conor O'Reilly and Siobhan Lough from Hymans Robertson on 'Predicting the future - reading the runes with the CMI'. All talks have been very well attended so far by both students and qualified actuaries, perhaps motivated by the popular networking events that followed, including gin tastings, pizza and comedy nights.
Over the remaining GASS year, the society hopes to put the IFoA regional society subsidy to good use and host another couple of CPD events. As we don't miss an opportunity to socialise, these will of course be followed with networking events with possibilities of a pub quiz or a treasure hunt on the cards.
