History and Mission
Consulting actuaries from across the world first met as a group at a special meeting of the 16th International Congress of Actuaries in 1960. Much of the impetus for this first and subsequent meetings was stimulated by Max Lander and Geoffrey Heywood. A similar meeting was held in Edinburgh at the 17th International Congress in 1964, when it was decided to set up a Committee to ensure that international meetings focused on issues of concern to consulting actuaries would continue to be held every other year on a more frequent basis that the ICA. Geoffrey Heywood was elected Chairman of the Committee, the other members being Messrs. Brans (Holland), Carson (South Africa), Hamilton (U.S.A.), Heubeck (Germany), Lander (U.K.), Melville (Australia) and Warren (U.S.A.).
This Committee, with a few changes, organised the IACA business meetings held in Munich in June 1968. At the third business meeting on 13th June 1968, it was agreed that the International Association of Consulting Actuaries should be formally constituted, separate from the International Actuarial Association, and a formal set of Rules was adopted unanimously. The Committee appointed under the Rules was as follows:
Chairman Geoffrey Heywood Great Britain Vice-Chairman James A. Hamilton U.S.A. Secretary/Treasurer Maxwell Lander Great Britain Committee R.W. Abbott
Preston C. Bassett
J.A.Theo M. Brans
Henry G. Devitt
