At least two
things came to fruition from the 1960s science fiction TV shows many of us watched
as children. First, as the title of this blog suggests, it is now acceptable to
split an infinitive (that is, insert an adverb between the word “to” and the
verb). Second, although we still don’t have flying cars, it is possible to conduct
meetings and converse with people miles away while looking at a screen. This
came in quite handy as we planned our 2021 Pinnacle University program.
In 2020, the Minority
High School Scholars Analytics Academy, or MHSSAA, will mark its 25th year. The time is right once again to pause and honor this program and all that it represents to the insurance industry, the actuarial profession and the students it serves. Through the MHSSAA, participating students from around the country learn about how insurance works, the requirements of the actuarial profession and the role of analytical skills in solving real-world business problems.
At Pinnacle, giving back is a centerpiece of our culture. In fact, community involvement is one of our core values as an organization. During the year, our employees give to and volunteer at all kinds of charitable organizations, from Wounded Warrior and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital to local churches, schools and food pantries. We’re proud of everything our people do, both for our
clients and in making our communities (and the world) a better place. We truly
have great people at Pinnacle.
In the spring of 2019 we attended our first industry event: the Casualty Actuarial Society’s (CAS) Ratemaking, Product and Modeling (RPM) Seminar. RPM serves as a networking event and provides continuing education for CAS members by way of numerous workshops and sessions. We both work on predictive analytics projects, which made this event relevant to our work and solidified our understanding on many of the topics we work on every day, including modeling methods, model testing and implementation.
