Default Society of Hispanic Actuaries

I have decided that there needs to be an actuarial club or group for Hispanic/Latino actuaries and actuarial students. Earlier I had entertained this idea and I did not follow through. I have realized that the only way such an organization can be established is if I do it myself. I believe that creating such a club is a necessary and workable undertaking.

It is also very important for us to get together, not to negatively criticize one and other, rather we should associate to assist and advance each other. For example, those further along in the exam process can advise new students on exam material or study materials. Also, those who are newly hired can advise student actuaries preparing for the interview process, etc. The more experienced actuaries can serve as mentors to those considering the career or preparing for it in university.

Let's come together on this for mutual benefit. Having passed exams P and FM now, I am studying 100's of MLC problems as prep for the May 13th sitting. After having studied this material for a year now, I think I can help some of my younger (or older) counterparts with the test material. We can all help, and do so in a life-transforming way.

I am in the LA area, and there are plenty of places for all of us to meet and help lay a solid foundation for a fun and highly effective group. I am going to obtain a web address, create a basic website, and get the ball rolling. WE NEED THIS ORGANIZATION !

Cool Y los otros hispanos de la América e Europa?

En mi opinión básica, yo creo que si seria una buena idea, pero también se me esta pareciendo que esto seria mas para chicanos, que de verdad no representa toda la comunidad hispana.

Creo, que es una idea que puede crecer, para ser algo muy grande en el futuro, que ayudaría aspirantes hispanos e hispanas sobre todo América y los países hispanos en Europa.

Nomas, la cuestión va ser que fuerte de una sociedad vamos tener para que se empiece a extender a otros estados estadounidenses, México, Panamá, Brasil, o Argentina? Y, yo menciono esto porque se parece que el cuartel general sería en California o Florida, porque allí existe la población hispana mas, generalmente, educada; y, donde yo creo que existirían mas actuarios hispanos e hispanas.

Pero, yo también se que existen muchos en Nueva York. De pasar de varios hilos, a notado que si existe una población significa de actuarios Mexicanos, en esa ciudad/estado.

De todos modos, yo nomas podría poner mi mano de obra sobre el este sitio virtual, porque yo vivo en Colorado; donde se que existen muy pocos, eso es si hay, actuarios hispanos e hispanas.
