A Word from the President
Hello everyone and welcome to the Actuarial Students’ National Association website!
We are a student organization, established with the primary purpose of providing professional and peer support to all the students in the Canadian actuarial community. Since ANÉA-ASNA was founded 26 years ago, the association has steadily grown to be the largest organization of actuarial students in North America with regards to the number of member universities and sponsors, and most importantly, student engagement. We have taken big leaps towards achieving our objective of assisting fellow actuarial students and have established a respected brand within the Canadian actuarial community.
The magnanimous support and aid from the Canadian Institute of Actuaries and all of our other sponsors makes the functioning of this organization smooth and efficient. We have recently entered into a joint venture with the Canadian Institute of Actuaries to ensure their continued partnership in implementing new initiatives by ANÉA-ASNA, with the purpose of providing ever increasing levels of support to all of our members nationwide. This relationship has been nurtured with the CIA with strong amity for the past two decades and with the 50th anniversary of the CIA being celebrated this year, we hope to strengthen the bond for years to come.
As we take on the challenges of providing guidance to our members amidst rapidly changing educational and exam requirements, and in accordance with the needs and expectations of employers, I invite you, as an aspiring actuarial student, to be part of this association. You will be challenged to develop as a professional and as a leader, all while building your network.
I hope to see you at our annual convention to be held at Niagara Falls from January 8th to January 10th, 2016. Be a part of the largest actuarial gathering for students in North America; where professional networking, peer engagement and discussion of the vital issues faced by our industry all happen under one roof.
I wish everyone best of luck until we meet! Should you have any questions about the organization or would like to talk about the field itself, I am always available via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
President, Actuarial Students’ National Association
