Subsidy for regional communities

Regional communities are an important feature of a professional membership organisation, giving a focus and a voice to members where ever in the world they are based. In recognition of the contribution that regional communities make to the actuarial profession, Council has committed to providing them with financial support

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?

If you have not yet selected your regional community, please log in and go to your Contact Preferences to do so.

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 IFoA Senior Stakeholder Relationship Manager, Kirstie Smith.
