IAA admits the Asociación Colombiana de Actuarios as a Full Member

The International Actuarial Association (IAA) is pleased to announce that it has admitted the Asociación Colombiana de Actuarios (Colombia - ACA) as its 64th Full Member association with effect from May 26, 2013.  The ACA, whose President is Mr. Rodrigo Silva, has a membership comprising 5 fully qualified actuaries, 67 Associates (including those FQA) and 30 students.  The ACA was established in 1970 and was previously an associate member of the IAA since 1998.

Admission as a Full Member association of the IAA follows a rigorous process that includes reviewing the education program and ensuring that the applicant association has a Code of Professional Conduct, a formal discipline process, and a formal process for the adoption of standards of practice, where applicable. The IAA Accreditation Committee reviews each of these documents to ensure compliance with IAA set requirements. The IAA Education Committee ensures that the association’s education programme meets the criteria set out in the IAA Education Guidelines and Syllabus and that all the actuaries that will be recognized as attaining fully qualified status will be required to have successfully completed this programme.
