we dream, we create, we change, we love

My Last Picture Show

leave a comment »

I may have already attended my last Enrolled Actuaries Meeting, last year. After 26 consecutive annual conferences, I may be done.

Things have moved on. I doubt I’ll be missed. Nobody will remember what I did to things. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

I think my favorite moment was when I created a visual representation of the general nondiscrimination test completely on the fly, off the cuff, just spare change and pieces of paper on a blank overhead projecter.

And there was the memory that wasn’t: the year I could have “owned” a speaker’s seat for all seven breakout sessions, a record that never would have been bested.

And the year the hotel gave me a luxury suite because my room reservation had been screwed up.

Thousands of other memories over a quarter of a century at the pulse of the profession, now more than likely behind me. I doubt I’ll miss it. Oh well. Send no flowers.
