CAS and SOA To Hold Second Joint ERM Symposium at Chicago in April
The Casualty Actuarial Society and Society of Actuaries will again jointly sponsor a professional education symposium on enterprise risk management (ERM) issues. Building on the success of last year's event, the 2004 Enterprise Risk Management Symposium will be presented April 26-27 at the Renaissance Chicago Hotel in downtown Chicago. Georgia State University's Thomas P. Bowles, Jr. Foundation is a co-sponsor of the Symposium. The Professional Risk Management International Association (PRMIA) is participating as well.
The 2004 ERM Symposium replaces the CAS Risk and Capital Management Seminar on the calendar of continuing education opportunities. However, many of the issues covered previously at the Risk and Capital Management Seminar will be addressed at the ERM Symposium.
"The response to the 2003 ERM Symposium was overwhelmingly positive," commented Kevin Dickson, chairperson of the CAS/SOA Committee for the ERM symposium. "The interaction and dialogue generated by bringing both CAS and SOA members together to discuss this topic are invaluable. The planning committee is working hard to make the 2004 program even more engaging than last year's."
The symposium provides an ideal learning opportunity for casualty actuaries. With the convergence of risk management practices throughout the financial sector, actuaries will hear the latest on trends and techniques applicable to areas of practice such as risk pricing. Other sessions will address risk management options such as reinsurance and securitization. Actuaries with regular involvement in investment and financial matters will hear from experts in these areas, too.
A complete program describing the sessions will soon be available. A brochure will be mailed to all CAS members and posted online. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the CAS Office at (703) 276-3100, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
