About the ASPPA College of Pension Actuaries (ACOPA)

All credentialed actuarial members of ASPPA are members of the ASPPA College of Pension Actuaries (ACOPA). ACOPA is responsible for identifying and addressing the professional development needs of the actuarial membership of ASPPA, including maintaining the actuaries-only listserve, and offering conferences focused primarily on the needs of actuarial members. ACOPA members serve as representatives on other ASPPA committees and subcommittees to enhance the actuarial content of ASPPA’s programs and to bring an actuarial perspective to ASPPA’s strategic planning. ACOPA has primary responsibility for comment letters involving actuarial issues, accomplished through appointing members of the Defined Benefit Subcommittee of ASPPA’s Government Affairs Committee, and preparing formal comments, position papers or other relevant pronouncements that involve regulating authorities outside of Treasury, IRS, DOL, PBGC or SEC (such as FASB).
