Executive Vice President’s Report

Al Kertz, PhD, PAS, Dpl. ACAS

ARPAS is about creating a culture of integrity in our industry by virtue of our commitment to a code of ethics and maintaining professional accreditation.  Membership is the key element because it contributes to our critical mass in the industry.  Thus, membership has to be the key objective in a multi-faceted approach.

Immediate Past President’s Letter

Paul Beck, PhD, PAS, Dpl. ACAS

As I close out my time as President of ARPAS, it seems we have been very busy, but still have a lot that needs to be done.

Membership in ARPAS is still down, but the fall in membership last year was only about 40% of the reduction from the year prior. The reduction in Professional Member category was 60% of the total, which is problematic for the long-term sustainability of the organization. In the past-year we have added a new route to membership we are calling the Highly Qualified Individual membership route. The Bylaws have been updated to reflect this change and the Membership Committee has been repopulated to begin evaluating these nominations. The current Membership committee consists of Shelby Filley (Chair), Beth Kegley, Peter Erickson, James Quigley, Ryon Walker, Greg Martin, and Matt Beck. Thank you for your service to ARPAS.
