Default Please Petition for Jim Glickman

Hi All,

It's that time of year. Thanks in large part to your support last year, Jim not only made it on to the ballot for President-Elect, but came in 2nd out of the 4 candidates.

This year he will throw his hat in the ring and wants to fully meet the goal of being elected, so that he can drive meaningful improvements to the SOA. The first step is the petition process, which begins on July 1st. If you want to assist in the effort to help Jim get on the ballot, please feel free to email him directly at Jim.Glickman@lifecareassurance.com.

Br,
Marc Glickman, FSA

I don't yet know whom I will support this year. However, it seems bizarre that someone can finish second in a 4-way race for president, yet the very next year still be required to demonstrate support through the petition process. The fact that a candidate finished second and still didn't get past the nominating committee the following year illustrates the contempt the NC has for a large number of voting members.

Absolutely right. This is simply disgraceful. Jim is qualified in every imaginable way to be a candidate for president. The fact that he cannot get on the "endorsed" ballot (any more -- he did get on once, about 5 years ago) is evidence, if not proof, that the SOA chooses its leaders from a small club of trusted insiders. It's not an open process at all. And the hurdle to get on via petition is absurdly high. Totally ridiculous. I'm going to vote against their proposed amendments in protest!

Jim is running right? Looks like there's nothing for us to do until we get an email from the SOA where we get to decide which petition candidate we want to support.

I received a communication from Jim. I didn't notice the "July 1" until today. It didn't seem like these dates were in any of the SOA communication emails (correct me if I am wrong.)
