organizations draft questions and submit them to the Advisory Committee 
for its consideration. After review of the draft questions, the 
Advisory Committee selects appropriate questions, modifies them as it 
deems desirable, and then prepares one or more drafts of actuarial 
examinations to be recommended to the Joint Board. (In addition to 
revisions of the draft questions, it may be necessary for the Advisory 
Committee to originate questions and include them in what is 
recommended.)

representation on the Advisory Committee of points of view regarding 
the Joint Board's actuarial examination extant in the community at
