Actuarial Review Return to Main Page

Contributors Sought for Articles in Trade Publications

The CAS Media Relations Committee is charged with working through the media to enhance the external visibility of casualty actuaries. One of the committee's goals is to recruit CAS members to be contributors to the trade press. When CAS members write articles appearing in the media, they help to improve the public perception of the casualty actuarial profession, and promote the understanding of issues of concern to actuaries and our audiences.

The contributors are not speaking on behalf of the CAS or the actuarial profession. Contributors are interested professionals whose credentials as actuaries offer a specific perspective on events or issues in their industry. The Media Relations Committee will assist with the placement of submissions, but authors may have to expend some effort to get it published. The committee is also available to provide peer review of submissions, if desired.

Contributions could be in the form of opinion pieces or informational articles. Several topics have been identified for potential articles in trade publications, but contributions are not limited to these topics. Suggested topics include TRIA, credit scoring, hurricanes/mega events, and home valuation.

If you are interested in contributing an article to an industry trade publication or would like more information about this opportunity, please contact Mike Boa, Manager, Communications and Research, at the CAS Office [(703) 276-3100 or mboa@casact.org].
