Ratemaking and Product Management (RPM) Seminar

Philadelphia Marriott Downtown
CAS Meetings Are Going Green!
Green seminars incorporate solutions designed to minimize negative impacts on the environment. The CAS has taken a step in that direction by making the RPM seminar "paperless," which means:
- Paper copies of session handouts will not be provided in the meeting rooms.
- Paper copies of the list of attendees will not be distributed, though a few copies will be available for review at the RPM seminar registration desk.
- Seminar evaluations will be administered online.
- Session slides will be posted on the RPM seminar Web Site in advance of the seminar so that attendees can download, print, and bring handouts as desired. Please note that not every presenter will choose to provide a presentation in advance for his/her session.
Once at the RPM Seminar, attendees are encouraged to use the complimentary "Cyber Café" to view the list of attendees, complete the online evaluation forms, and download presentations to a USB flash drive for the sessions they attend.
The CAS appreciates your participation in this effort to reduce the seminar's carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
Business casual attire is suggested for all sessions, as well as the evening receptions on Monday and Tuesday. As meeting room temperatures and personal comfort levels may vary, it is recommended that you bring a sweater or jacket to the sessions.
In Philadelphia, the average high temperature during March is 53 degrees and the average low is 34 degrees.

Registration and attendance at or participation in CAS meetings, seminars, and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to the CAS use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant or attendee's image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproduction, and audiotapes of such events and activities.
Continuing Education Credits
The CAS Continuing Education Policy applies to all ACAS and FCAS members who provide actuarial services. Actuarial services are defined in the CAS Code of Professional Conduct as "professional services provided to a Principal by an individual acting in the capacity of an actuary. Such services include the rendering of advice, recommendations, findings, or opinions based upon actuarial considerations."
Members who are or could be subject to the continuing education requirements of a national actuarial organization can meet the requirements of the CAS Continuing Education Policy by satisfying the continuing education requirements established by a national actuarial organization recognized by the Policy.
This activity may qualify for up to 13.5* CE Credits for the RPM Seminar for CAS members. Workshop attendees may add a maximum of 7.2 CE Credits. Those attendees who participate in a Monday Afternoon or a Tuesday Breakfast Roundtable can add .6 CE Credits per roundtable. Participants should claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. CAS members earn 1 CE Credit per 50 minutes of educational session time not to include breaks or lunch.
*The amount of CE credit that can be earned for participating in this activity must be assessed by the individual attendee. It also may be different for individuals who are subject to the requirements of organizations other than the American Academy of Actuaries.
