CAS Announces Series of WebEx Conferences on White Paper on CAS Education Strategy
The CAS Board of Directors has endorsed a proposed strategy for future CAS education, with significant implications for both basic education and continuing education. The White Paper on CAS Education Strategy has been developed to present the strategy to stakeholders.
To assist with both communicating details of the strategy and gathering feedback, a series of WebEx Conferences has been scheduled. President Tom Myers and President-Elect Chris Carlson will conduct the conferences, during which participants will view presentation slides online and listen via teleconference. There will also be considerable opportunity for participants to ask questions and make comments.
Four one-hour conferences have been scheduled:
