Why do you want to serve on the CAS Board of Directors?

I am concerned that the current leadership of the CAS has lost touch with the members. There have been several strategic initiatives put forth by the leadership without consultation with members. These have included the decision to rescind the ratemaking principles, the attempt to merge with the SOA, and the recent attempt to disband the Executive Council and give more authority to the CAS staff.

The policy on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion was implemented without significant membership input. A recent poll on the board’s DE&I strategic initiative, although not yet officially summarized for the membership, has indicated substantial opposition to the current mission.

I wish to be elected to the Board so that we can begin to right this ship. This means upholding the basic principles of transparency, membership input, and a focus on actuarial issues, rather than broader social issues.

I want to continue to serve our profession by providing a balanced and rational voice for our membership on key issues and ensure that the CAS continues to embrace the views and needs of its membership.

Candidate Issue(s) Identification and Discussion

I believe strongly in the following basic tenets:

Transparency – The CAS has a duty to be transparent to its members and ensure that the organization’s goals and initiatives are in line with the membership.  This means finding more ways to actively engage the membership in strategic issues that affect all casualty actuaries, both current members and potential future members.  This also means ensuring that members stay active and involved in the day-to-day functions of the society and remain key advisors with regards to the society’s mission and long-term strategic goals.

Mission Focus – The CAS mission is to advance the body of knowledge of actuarial science, increase awareness of actuarial science, and contribute to the well being of society. As a director, I will work to ensure that all activities within the CAS uphold this mission, follow good governance, and adhere to the organizations constitution and bylaws.

Membership Focus – As a director, I will work to ensure that the strategic goals and long-term initiatives are in sync with the needs of the membership and begin to restore trust that the organization values its members as a vital component of its success.
