FSNet News #5 -- August 27, 1999

I hope the start of school is progressing well for everyone. A lot has been going on during the summer and we have a lot of information to share with you. We will try not to overwhelm you by keeping each edition fairly short. In the future, we will be sharing information about the National Academy Foundation and California STC conferences. If you attended, your review of a worthwhile breakout session or other activity.

Ever wonder how insurance companies set rates? Want to know how you can integrate the math topics into your financial services career path? Then you are a candidate for the Actuarial Career Information Fair on Wednesday, October 20, 1999 at the Marriott Hotel in San Francisco. This FREE event is packed with information about the actuarial science profession and the academic preparation needed to be an actuary. The fair is designed for educators, students and others who know little or nothing about actuarial science but would like to know more (you can bring up to three students).

Breakout session topics include: classes to take in high school and college, an introduction to actuarial exams and the professional education system, real world examples of a day in the life of an actuary, and an interactive session in which attendees will solve an auto insurance pricing problem.

If you are interested, email me your fax number and I will fax you the registration form or you can contact Linda Heacox at 847-706-3528 or email her at . If attend, donĂ­t forget to or share any interesting information.
