Volunteering has been an essential factor for the success and growth of the Society of Actuaries, local actuarial clubs, as well as for our society as a whole. Volunteers commit their passion and energy to build better professional and societal communities. In return, they build connections and skills that benefit their professional and personal lives.
In this session, panelists will share their volunteering experience with and outside of the SOA, discuss how volunteering helps advance their careers and enrich personal lives, and provide insights into how to start with various volunteering opportunities.
