Second Annual UCLA Actuarial Case Competition
We are happy to announce the coming of the Second Annual UCLA Actuarial Case Competition. We are very thankful to Kaiser Permanente for writing our case this year. The competition will be held during Weeks 1 and 2 of Winter Quarter as to not interfere with schoolwork.
This will be a great opportunity for members to learn more about the actuarial career and practice professional skills. The most outstanding teams will be matched up with an actuary from Kaiser as a mentor and have the opportunity to present in front of various firm professionals. This is a big plus in the recruiting scope; some members of top teams last year have had special opportunities to interview at several firms. Additionally, the winners of the competition will win a $100 gift card and a trophy.
We would like to see how many members are interested in participating before setting the number of members per team, so, if you are interested in participating, please fill out this form.
Please note that you must be a paid member to participate. If you have not yet paid, we will be collecting membership fees during the kick-off meeting on Thursdasy, January 9 of Week 1.
BAS Fall Social: Casino Night
Everyone is in the thick of Fall Quarter now, and so in case you are tired of studying for midterms and applying for jobs/internships we have a social event to help everyone de-stress. We welcome you to come relax and have fun with BAS at our first ever Casino Night!\
What: Casino Night
When: Thursday, Nov 21, 2013 6:30pm - 8:30pm

The remaining gift card will be raffled out to one lucky winner.
Don't worry if you don't know how to play any of the games: officers will be at each game station to help newcomers learn the rules so everyone can participate.
Finally, Sushi Stop and Diddy Riese will be provided, so please RSVP here to ensure that we have enough food for everyone.
