The Actuarial Society supports actuaries and promotes the interest of the profession in the various practice areas in which its members operate. In order to accomplish this, different committees, task forces and forums are in place. The Committee Handbook describes the Society Committee structure, provides guidance on how Committees should be run and also outlines what Council expects from Committees.
PRACTICE AREA COMMITTEES
The various Practice Area Committees are responsible for the technical and research work related to the main practice areas.
Council Standing Committees
These Council Standing Committees support the Practice Areas Committees in areas that impacts the whole actuarial landscape.
SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE
This committee was established due to the need for actuarial assistance and involvement in Systems and Technology areas. This committee aims to bridge the gap between IT and actuarial.
Activities of the Committee / Mandate of the Committee
The International Committee: Africa (formerly the Africa Committee) was established given the growing number of ASSA members who were working in countries on the African continent outside of South Africa. The committee is a sub-committee of the Stakeholder Board.
The committee has the following objectives
- To support the growth of actuarial societies on the rest of the African continent,
- To work with those actuarial societies on the rest of the continent to support input on legislation in general and including the ability of the FASSA designation to be recognised in the practice areas in which actuaries work,
- To support the education and continual professional development of students and members who operate on the rest of the African continent, and
- To maintain stakeholder contacts in countries where ASSA members may have professional work and interest.
