Board Approves VP Renaming and Realignment

New EC Succession Schedule Implemented

CHICAGO, Il.—At its September meeting, the CAS Board of Directors approved the renaming of two Executive Council (EC) vice president (VP) positions and realignment of their committees, as well as adjustment to the EC succession schedule.

The VP-programs & communications will now be VP-professional education and the VP-continuing education will be renamed VP-marketing & communications.

The two affected VPs, Chris Carlson (professional education) and Roger Schultz (marketing & communications), analyzed the common characteristics in their responsibilities. Under the realignment, all meeting- and seminar-related committees will fall under professional education. Marketing & communications will conduct activities on behalf of the CAS and the casualty actuarial profession and will oversee development of a continuing education strategy to support the educational needs of members.

The board agreed that these changes more efficiently group the responsibilities and work flow for each vice president position.

To foster continuity within the EC, the new succession plan will have two new VPs appointed in any given year. With the revised schedule, balanced VP succession will be achieved by November 2005.
