Nominating Honorary Fellows
The IFoA annually seeks nominations for individuals who might be invited to be put forward for election as an Honorary Fellow. They should be individuals who are able to add value to the profession and can have an active and ongoing involvement with the IFoA.
Based on the current bye-laws and subsequent guidance provided by Council, Honorary Fellow nominees should be individuals who:
- "...have achieved distinction in related fields or given significant service to the actuarial profession." (bye-law 37)
- can add value to the profession
- have a direct connection with the profession
- have an ongoing relationship with the profession.
Further to this, proposed Honorary Fellows will also be considered in the extent to which they can support the profession's strategy.
Honorary Fellows have the same voting rights as Fellows but are not subject to a member subscription fee. Honorary Fellows are subject to the Actuaries’ Code, and we would expect them to behave in a way that would not damage the reputation of the IFoA.
All nominations require a proposer and seconder from within the IFoA membership and are usually considered annually by the Policy and Public Affairs Board.
Any queries can be directed to the IFoA's Public Affairs team.

Internal audit is often the Cinderella of the audit world. It’s a regulatory requirement for insurance companies to have an internal audit function, so why not make it as useful as possible? This session will look at how to link an internal audit plan to the risk register, and how that helps audit committees and boards to spot problems and fix them.
Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.
