"Cecil Bykerk takes the helm as the 2013 Academy president"

Top line of an email I just got from the AAA. Interesting to see what happens from here.

Cecil D. Bykerk, President of the Society of Actuaries, sports seven (7) sets of initials after his name. He is, officially:

Cecil D. Bykerk, FSA, MAAA, FCA, RHU, FLMI, BA, MS

By our tally, this puts him in the lead in the Society President Trailing Initials Competition.

If you know of a society president who can better that, we would enjoy hearing from you.

Some would say that even one would be too many.

I think I remember seeing that when it came out. It was amusing.

It's interesting to note that Cecil was SOA president from October 2008 until October 2009. Can you name one thing that the SOA did during that year? I can't. As far as I can tell, Cecil ran for SOA president simply to pad his resume. He had no agenda of any kind except to promote FEM, but I managed to kill that before his term even began.

Of course, a do-nothing president like Cecil is far superior to a bomb-thrower like Brad Smith. (Damning with faint praise.)
