That's central grading, not central reviewing.

There are many E&E volunteers at the central review; during one breakfast, you introduce yourself to the group. I don't remember hearing your name, that's all.

What are you reviewing? That was what I was asking.

I assume you're reviewing the exams before they are given, correct?

Yes, you are correct in the central review E&E volunteers do the final review of the exam questions.

In the central review, volunteers were given some memorabilia (t-shirt, hoodie etc), then amazon gift card.

In the central grading, I got some little things like cheap USB hub, flash drive, etc with SOA logo.

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.

Yeah, I didn't get anything for grading except for some pens & pads of paper from the hotel.

Oh, and one of the hotel soaps. (the last time I had graded was yeaaaars ago, and I didn't get any tchotchkes then, either)


With speakers, it seems to have been hit & miss. Sometimes I have gotten something at SOA meetings where I speak, but usually all I would get is a red ribbon for my nametag. I think it depended on who was sponsoring the talk... some of the sections would give something, and some wouldn't.

I wonder if they have a bunch of stuff with the old logo on it. I would totally take that crap off their hands.

from today's SOA email:

Quote:
Member Recognition Program
Recently the SOA announced the SOA Member Recognition program as our way of saying thanks for your participation with the SOA. Members earn points from volunteerism, professional interest section participation and continuing professional development, and for accessing SOA information. Check your email for a message sent earlier this month that contains your total points earned in 2015. Members with 23.5 points or more qualify for a gift to be redeemed by July 1, 2016. If you receive a gift, share a photo of yourself with it through Instagram, Twitter or Facebook using tags #SOAmember #participate.

Visit www.recognition.soa.org for more information. In a few months we will provide a snapshot of your points earned for the 2016 calendar year. Contact MemberRecognition@soa.org if you have any questions.

probably if you post to this place:

https://engage.soa.org/home

That's going to be emptier than the desert.

What about us non-members that need to be recognized? I recall some volunteer work for the SOA.
