A world congress depends on the positive influences and the personal exchanges between participants from various nations. Therefore, an important aim of the International Congress of Actuaries 2018 in Berlin is to offer participants from all regions of the world the opportunity to be a vital part of a diverse and multinational network. To support the valuable Bursary Program of the International Actuarial Association, the DAV has launched the charity campaign “Actuaries For Actuaries” in order to enable even more actuaries from emerging countries to participate in the ICA 2018. Actuaries worldwide can participate and help to raise funds for the project. In 2018, the collected donations will be transferred to the IAA bursary fund to finance extra scholarships for actuaries from emerging countries or smaller actuarial associations.
The goals of the campaign are
- to support the variety of views at the congress,
- to promote the actuarial community,
- to offer financial assistance to actuaries, particularly from emerging countries.
