CAS APPROACHES 100th BIRTHDAY
Committee Plans Commemorative Book
Mark your calendars! The CAS will celebrate its 100th birthday in 2014!
In preparation for this event, the CAS Board of Directors has established the Committee on the CAS Centennial History. The committee is charged with producing a commemorative history book of the Casualty Actuarial Society in observance of the Society's centennial in 2014. The two-part book will consist of a technical history of the CAS and a more personal history of the Society, consisting of essays and anecdotes written by members on various aspects of their experiences. The committee will design the book's overall structure, recruit and assist authors, edit each contribution, search for and obtain photographs, and publish and distribute the book.
The committee is enthusiastic about this project, both because of the historical significance of the centennial book and because this is a wonderful opportunity to solicit articles, essays, and anecdotes from all of our members, especially our more senior members. The committee is currently reviewing a list of the CAS's senior members, and will be contacting them shortly to get their suggestions for the book and to request contributions.
All members are encouraged to contribute ideas to the committee. You can do so by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The committee consists of Stan Khury (Chair), Chuck Bryan, Dave Skurnick, Walt Stewart, and Walt Wright. Elizabeth Smith, CAS Manager of Publications, is the staff liaison.
