When we remember 2018, its events and circumstances have been more varied and challenging than one might imagine. Hacks, ransomware and data intrusions were announced weekly. Volcanic eruptions, wildfires and mudslides decimated a record number of homes and forest acreage. The entire island of Puerto Rico continues to suffer Hurricane Maria’s devastating effects. We have also become numb to the numerous senseless shootings in places where we used to feel safe.

At last month’s Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, we were each honored to become Associates of the CAS and receive our ACAS credentials.

When I was an actuarial student at Illinois State University (ISU), I had the opportunity to benefit from the unique partnership between Pinnacle and ISU that provides students the chance to meet and work with professional actuaries throughout their college years.
The Adventures of an Actuarial Intern

I walked into Pinnacle Actuarial Resources, Inc.’s Atlanta office four months ago to begin the first day of my actuarial internship. After moving seven hours from home, this would be my first professional experience in a purely actuarial role. I was also starting with Pinnacle right in the midst of opinion season, the busiest time of the year for consulting actuaries. To say I was intimidated was an understatement, but on that first day I was greeted with nothing but kindness and immediately put to work.
