Volunteers needed to investigate development of Institute Professional Standards Glossary

The Professional Standards Committee is seeking volunteers to form a Working Group to investigate and make recommendations in relation to the development of a common Professional Standards Glossary. Maintenance of a common Glossary is in line with the approach taken by the International Actuarial Association in developing its International Standards of Actuarial Practice.

The Working Group will report to the Professional Standards Committee.

Areas for consideration by the Working Group will include:

  • Comparison of definitions in existing Standards to assess the current degree of consistency/overlap;
  • Consideration of how many defined terms are referred to in multiple Standards;
  • Consideration of whether each Standard might still need its own glossary for technical terms;
  • Consideration of how a glossary would be maintained and how changes would be approved;
  • Practicality of using hyperlinks in Standards to link back to a glossary.

This opportunity will suit Members with experience in documenting business and/or governance processes or in developing Professional Standards and Practice Guidelines.

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity or would like more details, please email Lily Meszaros or call 61 (02) 9239 6121.

This page will be updated regularly with new and existing vacancies. In the meantime, please send any volunteering expressions of interest to volunteers@actuaries .asn.au
