SOA Executive Director Greg Heidrich presents IAK President Jae Min Lee, FIAK, with a gift of appreciation. The stained-glass replica of one created by world-famous Chicago architect Frank Lloyd Wright is called Tree of Life and is a symbol of the continued growth of the IAK and SOA relationship.

The Society of Actuaries (SOA) had a special visit on Sept. 9 at its headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois, from President Jae Min Lee, FIAK, and Senior Researcher Hyoyoung Kwon, of the Institute of Actuaries of Korea (IAK). The two IAK delegates met with SOA Executive Director Greg Heidrich; Andy Peterson, FSA, EA, FCA, MAAA, senior director, International; Sheree Baker, senior director, Governance; Karen Williams, project specialist, International; and Asia-Pacific Lead Wai Ling Yung, Ed.D.

During the meeting, there was a broad discussion on organizational best practices and opportunities for continued collaboration with a focus on professional development. The SOA looks forward to continuing its work with the IAK to service members, candidates, employers and universities in South Korea.
