Stand-In Speaker

-in speaker
Several months ago, I was originally requested for speaking at one of the Enrolled Actuaries Meeting‘s sessions on pension nondiscrimination. But communications broke down somewhere along the line, so the non-government speakers were not informed of my willingness to speak until last night, making coordination rather difficult for them. On nondiscrimination, I can coordinate from my perspective (or my governmental agency’s perspective) on the fly, at a moment’s notice. But we handled that this morning by simply having me on hand in the audience in the event any questions arose that might deserve my comment, and everything went smoothly.

This session on multiemployer pension plans under the new law is a somewhat different matter. Although I am nowhere near as knowledgeable on this topic as I am on pension nondiscrimination, I can still hold my own as either practitioner or speaker. Even so, only last week was I asked to stand in for another speaker on this session; so I’ve had almost as little time to coordinate with the other speakers.

But wind me up and hand me the microphone, and I can still usually tell you something you’ll feel was worth your attendance. So watch for me to be back up here again next year . . . hopefully a bit better prepared.
