In 2009 the ASB surveyed all actuaries who are practicing members of the five United States actuarial organizations (AAA, ASPPA, CAS, CCA, and SOA). The survey addressed the effectiveness of the ASB’s communication with members, and the process of developing and reviewing Actuarial Standards of Practice to determine if they are meeting the needs of the public and the profession.

The results of the survey were presented to the ASB. The response rate of approximately 25% was considered exceptionally high by the The Haefer Group Ltd., the independent research firm that conducted the survey. The final results of the survey can be found at the link below.

The ASB is very grateful to all who participated, as the information gathered along with the responses received on the recently issuedRequest for Comments on Actuarial Standard of Practice (ASOP) Content and ASB Procedure is being used to determine how the ASB might serve the public interest and the US actuarial profession better.
