Nominations Sought For Rodermund Award
ARLINGTON, Va.The CAS is encouraging members to nominate outstanding individuals for the 1999 CAS Matthew Rodermund Service Award. The Rodermund Award recognizes a CAS member who has made significant volunteer contributions to the actuarial profession. The award will be presented at the 1999 CAS Annual Meeting in November in San Francisco, California.
CAS members established the award in 1990 to honor Matthew Rodermund's many years of volunteer service to the CAS. Rodermund, who is the Editor Emeritus of The Actuarial Review, spent many years coordinating all phases of the production process of this publication with the help of his wife, Edythe, in their home.
When nominating a CAS member for the award, members are asked to include information detailing the nature of the nominee's volunteer service to the profession or Society. (The biographical section of the Index to Literature of the Casualty Actuarial Society is a good source of information on member contributions.) Please note: Neither service as an elected CAS officer or director, nor authorship of Proceedings or discussion program papers will be considered in the selection process. Past presidents of the CAS are not eligible for the award.
Members should send nominations by June 1 to the CAS Nominating Committee Chairperson, Albert J. Beer, c/o Casualty Actuarial Society, 1100 N. Glebe Road, Suite 600, Arlington, VA. 22201; fax (703) 276-3108; E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Past recipients of this award include Walter J. Fitzgibbon, Jr., Dale A. Nelson, Robert A. Miller, Robert A. Bailey, Norman J. Bennett, Robert B. Foster, Paul M. Otteson, and Richard H. Snader.
