Come to Chicago for CLRS!

Join us in Chicago on September 14-15 for the 2009 Casualty Loss Reserve Seminar (CLRS). The CLRS offers actuaries, analysts, accountants, regulators, and others an engaging opportunity to learn more about loss reserves and estimating unpaid liabilities. The 2009 CLRS will be held at the Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile Hotel in downtown Chicago.   

This year’s theme is “Prepared for the Challenge of Increased Scrutiny and Changing Risks.” The meeting is designed to help demonstrate actuaries’ unique ability to understand, evaluate, and manage risk within the context of the current financial crisis. With an emphasis on a “hands-on” approach, this year’s CLRS features practical sessions on both estimating reserve ranges and evaluating the accuracy and effectiveness of various estimation techniques. The 2009 CLRS will give you the tools you need to meet new challenges in the current economy.   

Seminar sessions will cover reinsurance reserving, financial reporting, variability and ranges, international issues, catastrophes and mass torts, professional development, emerging issues, and areas specific to individual lines of business. Attendees will be exposed to both basic and advanced topics in finance and financial risk management, including applications for pricing and analyzing property/casualty insurance.   

The CLRS is also an occasion to learn about the activities of the sponsoring organizations—the CAS, the Conference of Consulting Actuaries, and the American Academy of Actuaries—and what they are doing to improve the actuarial work product and the Statement of Actuarial Opinion. CLRS attendees are invited to share their own views and concerns on actuarial communication and the reserving process, and participate in a number of interactive sessions.   

This meeting is a “must attend” for those looking to learn more about loss reserves and estimating unpaid liabilities.
