A New Fellow’s Journey Just Begins

Being recognized as a Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society was easily for me the highlight of the Centennial Celebration and Annual Meeting in New York City. Achieving this career milestone at the 100th year anniversary of the CAS, with all my colleagues and friends, including 16 other new Fellows from Intact, made it even more memorable.

I am proud to be part of an organization that develops and supports the best property and casualty actuaries around the world. Now that all of the studying is behind me, it is time to give back to the organization. I have started volunteering as a CAS University Liaison to support and help other future Fellows through this rewarding journey. I hope to see many more Fellows from our Canadian universities being recognized at future CAS meetings.

Congrats to all the new CAS Fellows who celebrated with me in New York City!
