Casualty Actuarial Society's Envisioned Future

The CAS will be recognized globally as the premier organization in advancing the practice and application of casualty actuarial science and educating professionals in general insurance, including property-casualty and similar risk exposure.

Continuing Education Credits

The CAS Continuing Education Policy applies to all ACAS and FCAS members who provide actuarial services. Actuarial services are defined in the CAS Code of Professional Conduct as "professional services provided to a Principal by an individual acting in the capacity of an actuary. Such services include the rendering of advice, recommendations, findings or opinions based upon actuarial considerations". Members who are or could be subject to the continuing education requirements of a national actuarial organization can meet the requirements of the CAS Continuing Education Policy by satisfying the continuing education requirements established by a national actuarial organization recognized by the Policy.

This activity may qualify for up to 15 CE credits (not including workshops) for the RPM Virtual Seminar for CAS members. Participants should claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. CAS members earn 1 CE credit per 50 minutes of educational session time, not to include breaks or lunch.

Note: The amount of CE credit that can be earned for participating in this activity must be assessed by the individual attendee. It also may be different for individuals who are subject to the requirements of organizations other than the American Academy of Actuaries.

Virtual Seminar Recordings

Recordings of the seminar are available to attendees for the day they sign up for. They will be available on the platform for 90 days and then on UCAS for five years. Virtual Seminar attendees will get a discount of $50 for the other days’ recordings they did not register to attend live.
For those that do not register for the seminar, recordings will be $150/day and $250 for the full event.

Once a bulk registration is purchased, the purchaser will be emailed a discount code unique to their organization. This discount code will allow that organization's employees (in increments of six) to self-register for the Virtual Ratemaking, Product, and Modeling Seminar for free. Specific registration details will be provided with the discount code.

Instructions

For the employer to obtain this code, they will need to:

1. Login to CAS Store
2. One representative from an organization registers for the quantity of bulk registrations (in multiples of six), add to cart, and complete the purchase.
3. The representative will receive an email from the CAS with the discount code to distribute to the corresponding number of employees (if purchasing a bulk of six, you will distribute the code to six employees; if purchasing a bulk of twelve, you will distribute the code to twelve employees, etc.)

Once an Employer has the code and distributes it to the appropriate number of employees, individual employees should:

1. Login to CAS Store to register for the Ratemaking, Product, and Modeling Seminar
2. Add Full Event Individual Registration to the cart, regardless of price shown.
3. Apply the discount code - this will give them a zero balance fee
4. Click next until they ‘Submit Order’ and receive a confirmation email
5. A confirmation email will be issued upon completion of registration. Another email will follow closer to the event date that will include login instructions.
