Many believe the UK Actuarial Profession's website (UKAPW) needs significant work. This is my contribution. myFIA includes:

World class member support: the presidential target

Ronnie Bowie's Faculty Presidential address The world needs actuaries stated: "... the UK Profession will strive to become a world class member support organisation, supporting our members so that it is as easy as possible for them to continually develop and enhance their skills to meet each new challenge." The UKAPW should support this aim.

The site issues potentially affect:

The UKAPW site does not live up to the "world class support" aim, especially contrasted with (e.g.) the SOA sitesee our SOA review
