I was a speaker at the 2017 ASNA convention, and I was amazed at the number and at the enthusiasm of the students attending the convention. There were seven hundred people, and that is just a fraction of all those studying actuarial science in Canada! I remember thinking, ‘WOW! There is a lot of interest in the actuarial field here.’ When I talked and discussed with them, they all seemed pretty sharp individuals, so I think we are getting very strong students in the profession, and I am very pleased.
