According to an announcement made yesterday,
The American Academy of Actuaries honored Nancy Kichak with the 2008 Robert J. Myers Award for Public Service yesterday during its annual meeting. Kichak, the associate director for the Strategic Human Resources Policy Division of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), was selected in recognition of her major contributions to the common good through service to government. * * *The annual award is named after Robert J. Myers, who helped structure and fund the nation's largest social insurance program in history during his tenure as the chief actuary of the Social Security Administration from 1947 to 1970.
The award is certainly well deserved.
