Is it so difficult to write that "Bruce is currently the President-Elect and will be installed as President in October"?

You know like when a new POTUS is elected and they thank the outgoing POTUS for their service to the country. It's kind of hollow and meaningless, but it's nice and conciliatory when they're switching political parties. A nice way for the new guy to sound like he's reaching across the aisle that doesn't cost him a thing politically.

You have a point. I'm still playing the doubting thomas role here until I see it actually in print, or, say, Mr Schobel shows up here and asks me to put my fingers and hands in holes.
(That's biblical, not sexual.)

Perhaps I'm a bit impatient, but the same web site that posted the "resolution" still has the office of President-elect vacant. Maybe the only person who knows how to change that is gone for the day?

http://www.actuary.org/yearbook/board2.asp
As of 9/30 6:06PM PDT:

Executive Committee


  • John Parks, President (2011)
  • vacant, President-Elect (2012)
  • Bill Bluhm, Immediate Past President (2010)
  • Andrea Sweeny, Secretary-Treasurer (2012)
  • ...

I don't read this at all as Bruce being reinstated as Prexy Elect.

I see Bruce thinks it's best to cease litigation so that he and the Academy (separately, or together?) can to get back to the important work that must go on.

Possibly. That is more likely not be disclosed than stating directly that Mr Schobel is now (and again) the president-elect.
