Event information

Casualty Actuarial Society’s Envisioned Future (from the CAS Strategic Plan)

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 attendees of Crash Course for up to 14.2 CE credits 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.

Lodging

The August 2022 Crash Course in Vehicle Technology and Driverless Cars will be held at:

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
988 Dairy Road

The IIHS conference facilities are located outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, and the CAS has contracted a hotel for sleeping rooms as well as with a charter bus company to transport attendees between the hotel and IIHS conference facility.

Sleeping rooms have been reserved at the

Omni Charlottesville Hotel
https://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/charlottesville
212 Ridge McIntire Road
Charlottesville  Virginia  22903
Main: (434) 971-5500
Reservations: 1-888-444-6664
Room Rate: $169 for single/double room, plus taxes and is inclusive of complimentary internet access within guestrooms.

Reservations must be made prior to 5:00 p.m. ET on July 19, 2022. Check in at the Omni Charlottesville Hotel is 4:00 p.m. and check out is by 11:00 a.m.

Reservations may be made online or via telephone:

While reservations must be made prior to 5:00 p.m. ET on July 19, 2022, to receive the $169 rate, there is no guarantee that rooms will be available should you wait until this date.

CAS strongly suggests that you make your room reservations early to secure accommodations, particularly since the charter bus service between the hotel and IIHS will only pick up and drop off at the Omni Charlottesville Hotel.

Historic Hotel in Downtown Charlottesville

Adjacent to the historic downtown Pedestrian Mall, the Omni Charlottesville Hotel blends the area’s unique history with modern luxury. Relax in a seven-story glassed in atrium lobby, lounge in one of the heated pools, or unwind in contemporary guest room accommodations featuring a host of amenities designed to make your visit unforgettable.

Charlottesville/Albemarle Airport (CHO) is only 20 minutes away. 

Other airports servicing the area are:
Richmond International Airport (RIC): 80 miles from hotel
Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD): 103 miles from hotel

Transportation Between Omni Charlottesville Hotel and IIHS

The CAS has arranged for charter buses to transport event attendees from Omni Charlottesville Hotel to IIHS in the morning, and from IIHS back to the hotel at the conclusion of the event each day.  There will not be continuous shuttle service, rather a bus running to IIHS in the morning, and a bus returning attendees to the hotel on Wednesday evening and also on Thursday afternoon.  Shuttle bus times will be conveyed to event attendees and neither CAS nor IIHS will be responsible for individual transportation costs should an attendee miss the bus.

Important Information Regarding Official Crash Course in Vehicle Technology and Driverless Cars Hotel

The Omni Charlottesville Hotel is the only hotel that the Casualty Actuarial Society will run complimentary buses to and from the IIHS conference facility in conjunction with this event.  If you choose to stay at another hotel, the CAS will not provide transportation from that property to IIHS.

Suggested Attire

Casual business attire is suggested for the conference sessions and receptions. It is best to wear layered clothing as meeting rooms tend to fluctuate in temperature.

In Charlottesville, the average high temperature during August is 83 degrees F and the average low is 65 degrees F.
