Regional activity

A regional community is a self-assembled group of members who have come together either virtually or in person and have a common interest in providing a regional or cultural hub for actuarial development, both professionally and socially, with the support and encouragement of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)

Regional communities may be designated as a Society, Association, Network, Group or any other collective noun that describes a group of individuals who have come together for a common goal

The main purpose of these groups is to support their local actuarial community, and to provide a range of CPD and networking events.

We encourage all members to get involved with a regional community

There are 22 communities in the United Kingdom and 17 International regional groups, so you may find there are local opportunities to expand your professional network and gain CPD.

Regional communities provide a platform for members to network and gain CPD through local events

Each group has their own way of communicating and advertising their activities, so if you click through to the individual pages from the left hand menu will find social media links or direct contact information to find out more or to get involved.  

The volunteers who run regional communities do so for the benefit of members in their area and to help raise the profile of the profession

Regional communities offer:

  • networking and CPD opportunities
  • a forum for meeting technical experts for discussion of issues relevant to the profession
  • valuable opportunities for professional and personal development.

Regional communities, while not part of the IFoA or subject to the IFoA governance structure, work in close partnership with the IFoA to support and develop actuaries around the globe
