Welcome to the CAS Staff Spotlight, a column featuring members of the CAS staff. In this edition, we are proud to introduce Katie Hettler.
- What do you do at the CAS?
My main responsibility is to manage the Society Partners Program. Society Partners are crucial to our association, as they demonstrate a yearly commitment by supporting annual CAS activities. I ensure that their marketing objectives are carried out by coordinating their sponsorships and exhibitor booths at various events. Aside from that, I take part in advertising for the Actuarial Review as well as webinars, seminars and meetings.
- What do you enjoy most about your job?
Learning! It is impossible to perfect this role, because it is constantly evolving. I love coming to work knowing every day will be different than the last. Additionally, my coworkers leave sweet treats in the kitchen roughly once a week, which is cool.

Born in Pittsburgh (go Steelers!) — raised in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

Graduated from University of North Florida (you’ve probably never heard of it) with a degree in political science.

Easy. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

I can write, eat and throw with both hands. Is that even interesting?
