i noticed your editing out references to other actuarial organizatons. ok with me. However, the SoA is a driving force in North America as well as internationally in getting all the the actuarial organizations working together and working with higher standards. i need to get the scope of this effort properly reflected in the article. a large number of new entrants into the society were born outside the usa. it is important for them to understand the scope of these efforts because it creates future job opportunities for them and other future inquiries into wikipedia. one way to accomplish this is to link to websites, but i would prefer not to do that. joebrophy—The preceding comment was added by Josephbrophy (talk • contribs) 23:04, June 20, 2006 (UTC)

I was going to put my rationale on the talk page, but my wife needed the computer at that moment :). I understand what you mean (personally, I'm credentialed by the CAS but I won't hold that against you 8-D . Seriously, the best way to discuss that, in my opinion, would be to have a paragraph, properly sourced, regarding the drive (to say driving force needs to be verified or it falls under WP:OR ) with links to the various articles for the other organizations, all linked by Category:Actuarial associations. I'll do what I can to turn the list you had in the history into at least stub articles over time (but I MUST start studying for Part 9 too ). Thanks for your excellent work, and welcome to wikipedia!

CERA[edit]

The discussion is necessary because an ASA is not automatically a member of the AAA, only if they cover the current syllabus. The new version does not cover accounting/law, reserving, etc, which are requirements for AAA membership IIRC. This is one of the reason the CAS's Associate needs part 7. -- Avi 05:46, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

This is not correct. ASA meets requirements for MAAA. (http://www.actuary.org/beco.asp#3) Albertod4 (talk) 01:59, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

The motto of the SOA is its traditional line from Ruskin, as per the official history page: About the SOA: History. The "Risk is Opportunity" tagline is a marketing brand statement, not the motto of the organization.

References added to these, official branding site link also added. 167.206.50.86 (talk) 15:06, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
