Don’t Miss the 2012 CAS Spring Meeting

This spring the CAS invites you to Arizona for a dynamic program of educational opportunities, and networking and social events at the 2012 Spring Meeting! As an added bonus, you can enjoy all that Phoenix has to offer—from the desert flora of the Desert Botanical Gardens to Native American culture and art at the world-renowned Heard Museum to breathtaking vistas from Camelback Mountain.

The Spring Meeting will be held May 20-23 at the beautiful Arizona Grand Resort. Awarded the prestigious Four Diamong rating by AAA, the Arizona Grand Resort is the leading Arizona family vacation getaway and Southwest meetings destination. The 740-suite hotel and conference center offers an 18-hole golf course, athletic club, spa, salon, a seven-acre water park, and seven unique dining venues.

The CAS Program Planning Committee is putting together an informative, engaging program, including a keynote session and three general sessions. For the keynote session, a panel of insurance company CEOs will give their takes on the challenges they see the industry facing. The Spring Meeting’s three general sessions will cover current topics as well as address future challenges. “CERA” will look at what the CAS is doing to move forward with the Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst credential. “Determining the Impact of Climate Change on Insurance Risk and the Global Community” will present the findings to date of a working group charged with creating a climate change index. The index is partially funded by the CAS with the goal of helping raise awareness of the potential risks associated with climate change and risk management implications within North America and the world. “The Future of the Profession” will discuss the emerging trends affecting the actuarial profession.

In addition to the general sessions, the Spring Meeting offers over 25 concurrent sessions that will delve into reserve ranges, predictive modeling, trends, international issues, the financial crisis, risk management, regulation, the insurance cycle, workers compensation, auto, property, reinsurance, and business skills.

The Spring Meeting is a great opportunity for attendees to benefit from a first-rate educational program and to take time for networking and social events. Look for the brochure and registration information in the mail, and check the CAS Web Site for online registration.
