Regional community for New York - inaugural committee members

Howard Zail, an IFoA Fellow based in New York, has kindly volunteered to set up a regional community for members of the IFoA, and others, based in and around New York. 

New York LogoThe invitation is not restricted to this location and is open to all IFoA members, and others, even if you do not live in the New York area.

We are delighted to support this member in the formation of this inaugural IFoA regional community and we are seeking expressions of interest from members, and non-members, who would like to be involved, either as a committee member or a participant in this regional community group.

The purpose of the committee

Together this group will arrange events for this self assembled community.  In doing so, they will provide technical (CPD) events, as well as social and networking events.  Led by Howard Zail, the committee will be able to make good use of the online event material and videos available from the IFoA.  The committee members will be supported by the IFoA’s Stakeholder Relationship Manager who will highlight new material as it becomes available.  As a group, the committee will also be able to benefit from the opportunity to collaborate and share best practice with the other IFoA regional community and society committees around the globe.

  • at least one Fellow, one Student and one non-member.
