Committee on Online Services to Host
Online Discussion Forums
The CAS Committee on Online Services (COOS) is diligently working on a variety of initiatives to help bring the CAS up to speed with our electronic world. A critical element of this plan is the CAS Web Site. We are adding features and information to this site on a regular basis.
We currently provide a forum for open discussion in the Web site, but we want to provide the capability to focus on specific, timely issues.
We are planning to create organized discussion forums, where we would:
- identify a topic;
- provide some relevant material;
- select a moderator to focus the discussion;
- set a time limit for input; and
- organize and save the resulting discussion for posterity (either electronically or by other media).
We are interested in your feedback, particularly regarding potential topics, but also on how the structure of the forums could be improved. Please send an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Stephen Philbrick at (860) 843-7070.
We are discussing with SCOR, the international reinsurance firm, the possibility of using the recent SCOR prize papers on solvency and capital allocation as a possible first topic. Details have not yet been worked out, but watch the CAS Web Site for an announcement.
