The IFoA’s all-member survey. IFoA President, Dr Louise Pryor, blogs on the importance of listening to the member feedback obtained through this triennial survey.

On 16 November, every member of the IFoA will be invited to participate in the 2021 member survey.

We ran the full member survey for the first time back in 2018, when John Taylor, the then President-Elect, wanted to ensure that the membership was heard and listened to. 

Since then, there’s been a lot of change based on what the membership said, including free online events for members, changes to the CPD scheme, and our thought leadership programme contributing to a higher external profile for the IFoA.

These changes have culminated in the recently launched ‘New World New Thinking’ campaign which emphasises that every single interaction members have with the IFoA shapes their overall experience.

As I said in my presidential address, I believe that it’s important that the IFoA is a ‘learning society’, as well as a learned society: the IFoA must learn as an organisation if it’s to survive, and must support its members’ learning if they are to be successful.

This survey is an important part of the first part of that, the IFoA learning as an organisation, and the results will help with the second part – and with many other aspects of the IFoA’s mission.

The data gathered from the survey will help the IFoA to think about the individual needs of our members and to support you throughout your careers – whether as affiliates, students or qualified actuaries – and wherever you work.

The more you share your thoughts, comments and experience, the better the IFoA can understand the needs and challenges that the next few years holds and how it can support you.

So wherever you are, whatever your area of practice, please don’t miss your chance to shape what the IFoA can do for you. We need your views.

A personalised link to the 2021 member survey will be sent directly to all members on 16 November. Please complete the survey by 12 December.

If you haven’t received your link after 16 November, please check your junk mail filters and email membersurvey@actuaries.org.uk
