Join the CAS in Florida for the 2010 CLRS

Earn up to 15 continuing education credits, network with other loss reserving professionals, and explore all that Lake Buena Vista has to offer at this year’s Casualty Loss Reserve Seminar (CLRS), which will be held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on September 20-21.

This year’s CLRS will feature many hands-on and interactive sessions including a variety of case-studies and a mock trial. The CLRS will also offer basic and intermediate reserving sessions, which are primarily targeted to those attendees who are not members of the CAS. Underwriters, agents, and brokers, can benefit immensely from these introductory sessions. Attendees are guaranteed to leave this year’s seminar better able to understand, evaluate, and estimate loss reserves.

The CLRS is an opportunity to present and discuss significant loss reserving issues and their related financial reporting implications. The CAS, the American Academy of Actuaries, and the Conference of Consulting Actuaries have devised this year’s program to include a range of topics to interest professionals and students from a wide array of disciplines, including insurance, accounting, and risk management. Moreover, the seminar meets the continuing education needs of actuaries and other professionals whose responsibilities include loss reserving.

With sessions offered in a variety of areas, CLRS attendees will get updates on current issues and learn new techniques. Featured topics include lines of business, financial reporting, variability and ranges, international issues, catastrophes and mass torts, reinsurance, professional development, and emerging issues. Some of the planned sessions include a general session titled “Inflation Risk and the Property/Casualty Industry,” which will look back at the inflationary periods of the 1970s and early 1980s, and explore the implications to current property/casualty insurance balance sheets and income statements. A second general session titled “The FASB/IASB Insurance Contracts Project” will examine the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the International Accounting Standards Board's Insurance Contracts project.

Attendees at this year’s seminar are sure to enjoy the ultramodern Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Made up of a towering, A-frame, high-rise building and complemented by one garden wing annex, this lakeside resort is the only hotel in Walt Disney World to have the monorail system pass through the main lobby. Boasting views of nearby Space Mountain and Cinderella Castle, the resort overlooks 4.5 miles of shoreline along Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon and is the closest hotel to Magic Kingdom theme park. The sprawling grounds include a marina, pools, recreational facilities, a health club, tennis courts, convention facilities, and restaurants including the hotel's award-winning California Grill restaurant on the 15th floor.
