  • Ratemaking
  • Product Management/Innovation
  • Modeling
  • Professionalism/Regulation

This year the CAS will host its 2022 RPM Seminar and Workshops as a hybrid event – with both in-person and virtual elements, March 14 – 16, 2022, at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This meeting has opportunities for education, networking, and meeting with exhibitors.

The RPM Working Group is offering this three-day event with:

  • Featured Speaker, Jennifer Golbeck

  • 35 Concurrent Sessions

Attendees will have ample networking opportunities to renew and expand their list of industry contacts, and exhibitors will be on hand to demonstrate their relevant services and knowledge – all with the lively backdrop New Orleans, Louisiana has to offer.

The CAS is committed to following all local health guidelines to protect the health and safety of attendees. Therefore, space will be limited, and a sellout is expected, so hopeful attendees are encouraged to register early to secure their spot.

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 for up to 15 CE credits for the Ratemaking, Product and Modeling 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. 

Consent to Use of Photographic Images 

Registration and attendance at or participation in CAS meetings, seminars and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to the CAS’s use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproduction and audiotapes of such events and activities. 

Meeting Recordings 
Following the meeting, select sessions from the 2022 Ratemaking, Product and Modeling Seminar will be recorded and available to meeting attendees complimentary. Livestream attendees will receive the livestream recordings complimentary and the full event recordings at a discount. 

Suggested Attire 

Business casual 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 New Orleans, the average high temperature during March is 73º F /23º C and the average low is 54º F / 12º C.
