Well one of the four I voted for was elected. I don't seem to have a good batting average for picking winners.

On November 9 last year did you ask, "this article says Trump is president, so who is Obama?"


Same thing here.

If Marcie's answer was not helpful to you, here is something from last year:

RESULTS OF 2016 CAS ELECTION
08/30/2016 —

Balloting for the 2016 CAS election closed on August 29, 2016.

Brian Zunker Brown has been elected President-Elect.
One is President-Elect for over a year before actually becoming President (so the Obama/Trump comparison isn't exactly apt) - both the CAS and SOA do this.

Brown was elected P-E last year, becomes President of the CAS this year at the annual meeting.

And at any time, there are three presidents on the board. The president, the president elect, and the past president. So "president elect" is a job in itself, as well as training to be president.

One is President-Elect for over approximately a year (annual meeting to annual meeting) before actually becoming President (so the Obama/Trump comparison isn't exactly apt) - both the CAS and SOA do this.

Brown was elected P-E last year, becomes President of the CAS this year at the annual meeting.
IFYP, Ms Campbell.

Right now, Mr Brown is still President-Elect (as Patricia points out, a position in itself); while Mr Christie is President-Elect-elect, until the close of this year's annual meeting.

Ahh, got it.

It's not a Trump/Obama situation - Braithwaite is president now. It's a president elect elect situation; apparently the election is a year in advance.

No, the election isn't for President; it's for President-Elect (who will then become president the following year). The winner does not immediately take the office of President-Elect; the "inauguration" takes place at the close of the annual meeting.

The Trump/Obama analogy starts and ends at the gap in time between election and taking office.

Clear as mud?

IIRC, the election is for President-Elect, which is a three (often four) year commitment.

  • Year 1: President-Elect
  • Year 2: President
  • Year 3: Past President - presiding member of Board (chair)
  • Year 4: Usually chair of nominating committee
