You Have Such a February Face . . .
Erich Brandt July 27, 2022 Posted in: Blog Posts, News
February is a special month for consulting actuaries in Illinois. The days are long and cold, and reconciling data received to Schedule P with immaterial differences generates a real sense of excitement – not quite the excitement of your team winning the Super Bowl in February, but excitement nonetheless. 

Although at times I may sport a “February Face” at work, once March begins and the State of Illinois thaws, I look forward to the Illinois Shakespeare Festival (ISF). The ISF has been providing my community in central Illinois with live outdoor theater since 1978. The ISF has a well-earned reputation for outstanding productions with talented players.

What Can a Rope Bridge Teach Us About Kindness and Hidden Struggles?

Recently, Pinnacle’s consulting actuaries met for an annual meeting, held this year in breathtaking Vancouver, British Columbia. Beyond the usual continuing education content, team-building and social time (particularly important in a remote work environment!), I got a vivid reminder about what a truly inclusive environment means for employees with disabilities – those seen and unseen.

Turning “You Can’t” Into “I Will”
Luann Anderson March 08, 2022 Posted in: News
I have been thinking about an experience I had when I was young that had a formative impact on the direction of my professional life. 

When I was in grade school, I volunteered as a crossing guard, helping younger students safely cross the streets before and after school. After serving as a crossing guard for one year, I applied to be a “lieutenant.” However, I was shocked to be told that girls couldn’t be considered for this role. Subconsciously, this experience influenced my career; instead of making me accept the role I was supposed to fulfill, it gave me the push I needed to take up space in the world.

From Student to Mentor
Pinnacle Blog May 17, 2021 Posted in: Blog Posts, News

There’s little that speaks to the success of a program more than when it makes a full and complete circle. The Pinnacle University (Pinnacle U) program is a special, professional skills development program. It provides students with a unique opportunity to conduct research with actuarial professionals and present in front of a panel of experts, providing mentorship to future actuaries and supporting industry growth. Nicole McArdle, associate actuary, has come full circle in the Pinnacle U program. Nicole once participated in Pinnacle U as a student. Later, Nicole joined Pinnacle and became involved with Pinnacle U as an analyst working alongside new students. This year, Nicole graduated into the role of mentor, providing an even higher level of guidance for the Pinnacle U students on her team. We asked Nicole about her experiences on both sides of the Pinnacle U program.
