How about FSAs with a few years of PQE experience? Will that be much different from a fresh FSA with 3-4 years of experience?

So it's the same bunch of people who was involved in the August saga in charge of the governance task force? The same group of people who ignored the bylaw? I really don't get it.

But isn't the blast email "violates" the settlement? You agreed to resign, not agreed to be removed.

You know what, if FEM moves forward in Canada and the US stops mutual recognition with CIA, I actually don't care what will happen north of the border.

Not really for (2) because our current SOA PE mentioned he would like to have another form of FEM to exempt Exam P only instead of all other prelims. The ghost is still haunting us!

I think SOA's current PE switched his stance from "Let's keep the current exam system in place for a while" before he was elected to "Let's do FEM" afterwards. Impeachment applies here!! =D
