Spring 2004 CAS Meeting Set For The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs
Dan Crifo 

The Broadmoor   


Pike's Peak and the surrounding countryside—what a wonderful setting for the Spring 2004 meeting of the CAS! Take it all in—especially the continuing education opportunities offered by the program. The meeting kicks off on Sunday, May 16, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs and runs through Wednesday, May 19. A world-class resort, The Broadmoor is hosting a CAS Spring meeting for the third time.

Our featured speaker will be Terry "Moose" Millard, a senior executive with Southwest Airlines. Believing that love and fun are required to live a fulfilling life and reach maximum human potential, Mr. Millard uses his passionate style to convince people to take action—to make a difference—to push the envelope of performance. In 1990, he began sharing his   experiences and research as a seminar leader, consultant, and public speaker. Mr. Millard speaks about building and maintaining high performance corporate cultures, nurturing gutsy leadership, and dealing with adversity through "Realistic Optimism."

Four general sessions will delve into fundamental areas of interest to casualty actuaries like reserve inadequacy impacts, privacy of data, a global framework for insurer solvency assessment, and fair value accounting. Papers on generalized linear modeling, submitted in response to a call for papers, will be presented in concurrent sessions. Other concurrent sessions will cover earnings management and the post Sarbanes-Oxley world, actuaries in nontraditional roles, workers compensation developments, rating based on the vehicle (liability coverages as well as physical damage), risk-based capital factors revisited, and an array of other current topics.   

In addition to two scheduled receptions, attendees and accompanying persons will have the opportunity to enjoy a western barbecue at the hotel on Tuesday evening. For the athletically inclined, The Broadmoor is more than a mile above sea level—so while the ball will travel farther, hiking and biking activities will take place in the thinner air of the foothills of the Rockies.

More information and registration materials will be mailed to members and made available online. Please join us!
