ASM elects new Council members 

The Actuarial Society of Malaysia (ASM) today held its AGM at Berjaya Times Square Hotel and elected its new Council members for 2013-14, as follows:

President: Yap Chee Keong
Immediate Past President: Liew Pek Hin
Vice President: Wan Saifulrizal Wan Ismail
Secretary: Lim Weng Soon
Treasurer: Kelvin Hii Chee Yun
Committee Members: Vas Ramanujam
Krystle Lim Pei Chin
Jack Soh Wai Sun
Charlene Lee Shen-Yi
Auditor: Lim Kuan Hong

In his speech as the new President, Yap Chee Keong told the members that Malaysia was one of the few countries with its own regulator not recognising the local actuarial qualification: Fellow of Actuarial Society of Malaysia (FASM).  The new Council under his leadership would work towards having FASM qualification recognised by the regulator.

Earlier in the day, 3 local actuaries: Farzana Ismail, Patrick Cheah and Kelvin Hii presented their talk to an audience of over 100.

ASM also announced that its Fellow membership has crossed the mark of 100 for the first time in its 35 years history.
