Advisory Commitees

The Modeling the Future Challenge is supported by three volunteer actuary committees: The Challenge Development Committee, the Mentorship Committee, and the Judging Committee. The Challenge Development Committee is responsible for reviewing and refining the Challenge Statement and scoring rubrics for each annual competition. The Mentorship Committee reviews the mentor process for semi-finalist teams and serves as student mentors. The Judging Committee reviews the judging process and conducts online and in-person evaluations of team submissions. If you are an actuary, or in a related profession, and would like to learn more about becoming a member of one of these committees, please contact:
