I am sure SOA meeting speakers, organizers must have gotten some little gifts like that.

Now point accumulation.

I am sure, there is a good reason for not showing your point balance in mysoa; like forgetting your ID.
My coworker, who volunteered for an exam committee before I did, would get things at central review like shirts, etc. When I started volunteering, I got an Amazon gift card my first time, but I haven't gotten anything at subsequent central review meetings.

I had 67 points - I chose the donation to the Actuarial Foundation. I don't really need memorabilia that I'll never use. When I chose the donation, it didn't even tell me what dollar value is assigned to my 67 points.

that's amazing. I think you just made a donation to the Human Fund.

I'm going to be embarrassed if I get an email saying "thank you LoneGirl for your $2 donation"....

I wish they publish a points chart.

PS: LoneGirl, did you do some other things outside E&E work?

I attended the ValAct, so I'm assuming that counted for something. That's it as far as attending meetings/volunteering for things.

Thanks; it looks like meeting attendance counts more than committee work. Yes, we need a points chart.

I was hoping they would provide a points chart. I know personally I put in MANY more hours of committee work than meeting attendance.
