Current Education Projects
There are a number of ways the CAS provides its membership with professional education opportunities. We invite the actuarial community along with other interested parties to provide us with proposals and topic ideas for upcoming events and projects. Please check this page often for any new call for presentations or request for proposals related to many of our various initiatives.
Call for Presentations
To keep up to date on new Call for Proposals and RFPs, please join the online community Professional Education Projects, where you can receive notifications about upcoming projects by CAS staff.
The CAS call for presentations requires submitters to write learning objectives for the sessions they wish to present, i.e. "what will the participant be able to do after attending the session?" These two brief documents help submitters write learning objectives:
Limited Attendance Seminar RFPs
Limited attendance seminars are designed to be interactive in nature, allowing participants to get more hands-on-training from the instructors in various topics relating to the actuarial profession. Attendance is limited to a maximum of 35-40 students depending on the seminar. Attendees will be selected on a first registered, first accepted basis. Sometimes participants are expected to bring their own laptop to the seminar.
Please contact Nora Potter at email@example.com for more information or if you have a topic you would like to develop.
Call for Speakers
The CAS membership is comprised of individuals with many years of experience and proven leaders within their respective careers. The Casualty Actuarial Society welcomes volunteers (members and non-members) who have an expertise in presenting information in a dynamic way to become a speaker at one of our yearly events. Speakers at a Casualty Actuarial Society event assume a well-regarded responsibility of being a part of the continuing education process that assists in furthering the mission and goals of the society.
Speaking with the CAS
Speaking at a Casualty Actuarial Society event is an esteemed privilege. Speakers with CAS meetings have the singular task of preparing and delivering their presentations to an audience. Generally, volunteers are at minimum expected to represent the CAS well and complete any required tasks from the event coordinators.
Some key items expected of CAS speakers
- Provide a draft presentation to moderators/coordinators for review
- Provide any scheduling conflicts to event coordinator
- Upload a copy of the presentation for publishing to the web
- Check the accuracy of presentation and contact information
- Adhere to any deadlines put forth by event coordinator
- Register for the event, if applicable, and make hotel room reservations.
The length of presentations and specific topics will vary depending on the event. Speakers are frequently volunteers and offer a great service to our society. They are also afforded an incredible opportunity for personal growth and professional exposure.
