Congratulations to John Markley, Industry Relations Director and Molly Tollefson, Compliance Analyst; for their recent achievements.
John was appointed President of ASPPA College of Pension Actuaries (ACOPA) during a luncheon today at the ASPPA Annual Conference in National Harbor, MD.
ACOPA is responsible for identifying and addressing the professional development needs of the actuarial membership of ASPPA, including maintaining the actuaries-only Google Group, and offering conferences focused primarily on the needs of actuarial members. ACOPA members serve as representatives on other ASPPA committees and subcommittees to enhance the actuarial content of ASPPA’s current programs and to provide an actuarial perspective to ASPPA’s future planning. ACOPA has primary responsibility for the content of comment letters that involve actuarial issues, accomplished through appointing members of the Defined Benefit Subcommittee of ASPPA’s Government Affairs Committee, and preparing formal comments, position papers, or other relevant pronouncements that involve regulating authorities outside of Treasury, IRS, DOL, PBGC or SEC (such as FASB). ACOPA recommends ASPPA and ACOPA representatives to various intersocietal groups, and oversees the activities of the various intersocietal committees in which ASPPA has representation.
Molly was honored as the Martin Rosenberg Academic Achievement Award recipient at the ASPPA Conference in National Harbor, MD earlier this week. Click here to learn more.
