Disruptive Medical Technology is Changing Lives (Including Mine)
Rob Walling January 25, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, General
We live in truly amazing times. Technological advances seem to be changing every aspect of our lives. During the past several years, we have witnessed numerous technological developments that were once limited  to science fiction: 3-D-printed ears with built-in hearing aids, plastic exoskeletons for people suffering from paralysis, inexpensive prosthetic arms, and nanotechnology to treat various types of cancer, just to name a few. Within the next couple of years, I hope to personally participate in one of these amazing breakthroughs: a treatment for one of the most common forms of muscular dystrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth, or CMT.

The Value of University Partnerships
Erich Brandt January 18, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, General, Community Involvement
The strategic plan of the Casualty Actuarial Society includes a directive to “Develop strong relationships with academics and increase awareness among academics of the CAS career path.” Recognizing there are currently just over 3,000 four-year degree-granting institutions in the United States, a question arises as to how far this outreach extends. With this in mind, I’ve gone back to my roots and visited the two academic institutions that have most impacted my life.
The Impact of Autonomous Vehicles on the Insurance Industry
Multiple January 11, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, Apex Webinar
Just before the holidays we presented an APEX webinar on autonomous vehicles and their impact on the insurance industry. We would like to thank everyone who was able to participate. We discussed a wide array of topics ranging from platoon formations to legislative actions. We would now like to respond to some of the participant questions we received and share the results from our last polling question.

Here We Grow Again

Celebrating and Appreciating an Outstanding Year

Here We Grow Again

Pinnacle’s growth has been spectacular during the past 12 months. We recently hired two highly-experienced credentialed actuaries, Linda Brobeck in San Francisco and Terrence Wright in Atlanta. Two of our Actuarial Analysts, Daniel Teuma and Nick Alicea, were conferred with the Associate of the Casualty Actuarial Society (ACAS) credential at the November 2016 CAS Annual Meeting. Pinnacle currently counts 28 credentialed actuaries among our staff. At the start of 2016 we had 20, and in 2003, when Pinnacle was founded, we had 10. 
The Joys of Holiday Community Service
Christina Negley December 13, 2016 Posted in: Blog Posts, General, Community Involvement
I was eight years old the very first time I helped out at Springfield, Illinois’ Memorial Medical Center Foundation’s Festival of Trees.  My mother took my siblings and me with her as she volunteered at the annual fundraiser for the Foundation, giving us the tasks of refilling supplies for the children’s craft tables or picking up after the crafts were done.  Since that first year, the Festival has become part of our annual holiday celebration, and this year I used my Pinnacle community service day to once again volunteer there.
