Communities Committee

This committee advises the VP of Communities and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) (“groups”) and assists the VP in the oversight of the groups. The existing groups are

  • Public Plans Community
  • Healthcare Community
  • Emerging Leaders SIG
  • Multiemployer Plans SIG
  • Corporate Qualified Pensions SIG
  • Smaller Actuarial Consulting Firm SIG
A SIG is a group of individuals with a common interest that exchanges ideas and meets periodically. A Community is an SIG that has a Steering Committee and creates Continuing Education content and/or publish documents for public consumption (through the CCA’s Public Policy Process).

The creation of new groups is determined by the Leadership Team (President, President-elect and Immediate Past President) at the request of the VP of Communities and SIGs.

The following are some of the tasks that committee members may be asked to perform:
  • Act as a sounding board for the VP
  • Advise the VP on goals, strategies and tactics for groups and the CCA’s Community Platform
  • Provide suggestions for topic areas for new groups
  • Assessment of whether any groups should be disbanded
  • Encourage and spur group discussions in the CCA’s Community Platform
  • Review specific discussion postings and assess them for potential removal from the Platform
  • As the number of groups grows, provide logistical support to the VP, e.g. attending group conference calls and/or in-person meetings at the Annual Meeting
