CCA Members,

On Thursday, September 21, the CCA issued the following letter to the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Actuaries in response to their recent decision to exclude representation by the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and ACOPA from the Selection Committee for members of the Actuarial Board of Counseling and Discipline (ABCD) and the Actuarial Standards Board (ASB). Our Board is exploring other options and we will keep you informed of actions we take or any response we receive from the Academy. We welcome your comments at conference@ccactuaries.org.

Board Members of the American Academy of Actuaries

The leadership of the CCA is both dismayed and disappointed by the Academy's unilateral action to exclude representation by the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and ACOPA from the Selection Committee for members of the Actuarial Board of Counseling and Discipline (ABCD) and the Actuarial Standards Board (ASB). We would have preferred an opportunity to discuss the Academy's concerns before taking any action so that we could more fully express our position on matters and to address many of the mischaracterization of the CCA by the Academy in the communication to your members issued Friday, September 7, 2018.
