Overview

In Focus Seminar Cover

In our rapidly changing profession, P&C actuaries face new challenges every day.

As risks emerging from new technologies require more complex risk quantification and management tools, previous methods may no longer be relevant. At the same time, tools of the digital revolution — smartphones and wearable devices — are giving us more data than ever before. It is vital that actuaries mine this increasing volume of data and develop innovative techniques to evaluate it.

The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) invites you to be a part of the 2017 In Focus Seminar: “The Actuary of Tomorrow” scheduled for October 2-3 in Chicago, Illinois.  At the 2017 In Focus Seminar, we’ll address these challenges head-on with actuaries and other professionals conveying how to accommodate change and disrupt established ways of thinking. You will learn how to build better ideas, fail fast and safely, and apply your skills in nontraditional roles. Join us … because, ready or not, tomorrow is now.

  • Peer to Peer Insurers
