Yorkshire Actuarial Society

The Yorkshire Actuarial Society (YAS) was founded in 1981 as a society for Students, Associates and Fellows of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)

Meetings are normally held on a Tuesday or Wednesday in York or Leeds and start at 18.00. The sessions usually last one hour.

The YAS is free to join and new members and visitors are very welcome

The Committee is keen to receive ideas for technical and social events from members in the Yorkshire area and beyond.  If you have an idea for an event, please let the committee know.
