Subsidy for regional communities

The activities of regional communities are highly valued by the IFoA and are an important feature of a professional membership organisation. In recognition of the contribution that regional communities make to the actuarial profession, Council has committed to providing them with ongoing financial support

From March 2017, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) have offered each regional community £5 per annum for every active member of their community

This is to enable regional communities to develop the range and number of events, professional networking and lifelong learning opportunities 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.

    The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised. While many studies highlight the overall economic impact that biodiversity loss could have, it is much more difficult to quantify and understand the particular impact that is may have on individual businesses or communities. The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.

  • The Many Faces of Bias

    2 December 2021

    Spaces available

    This webinar looks at the many types of biases, both conscious and unconscious and the impacts they can have in the workplace.  Raising our own awareness and understanding of the issues can help us avoid the pitfalls of unconscious bias in particular.  We’ve all heard the phrase ‘office banter’ but are we sure that’s how those on the receiving end perceive it and is it ok to go along with it?
