From March 2017, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) will pay regional communities £5 per annum for every active member of their community
This is to enable regional communities to develop the range of events, the number and quality of speakers and the range of professional networking opportunities that they deliver in order to expand CPD output in their region and to increase opportunities for life-long learning for IFoA members.
What qualifies as a regional community?
The IFoA's definition of a regional community is:
A Regional Community is a group of members who have come together either virtually or in person and who 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.
Have a look at our Regional activity page to find out more about the wide range of important roles and activites that regional committees fulfill.
How do I nominate my regional community?
Members can nominate their chosen regional community by logging in to the website and going to 'My Account' and then clicking on 'Contact Preferences'. Scroll down through the contact preferences screen, and you will come to the section where you can select your regional community. Click on the down arrows to see the full list of communities available.
What if I don't have a regional community near me?
Communities are member-led groups that work together to provide activities and support to actuaries in their area. If this is something you think you might be interested in establishing, please email the Regions Manager, Tess Joyce.
