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

Note: Bulk registration will close on Friday, March 4, 2022, to allow time for all registration to be processed prior to the vendor deadline.

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 multitudes of 6), 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 correlated number of employees. For example, if purchasing a bulk of 6, you will distribute the code to 6 employees; if purchasing a bulk of 12, you will distribute the code to 12 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 Virtual Seminar.
  2. Add “Full Event Individual Registration” to the cart, regardless of price shown.

Actuaries 2.0: The Evolution of the Actuarial Role, sponsored by Akur8
The role of today’s actuary is undergoing a major transformation, from data manipulation and risk prediction to strategic decision-making. This transformation is unleashing the potential of technical teams and rapidly evolving the traditional actuarial role into a new strategic standard - the Actuary 2.0.  And with it, the rise of the actuarial scientist.  Join us to learn more about this transformation and how Akur8 can fully empower actuaries on this journey.

RB-Actuarial, Sponsored by Intellagents
Insurance companies are working hard to find new sources of revenue to offset rising claims costs and other items outside their control like low interest rates. One way is to bring new innovative products to market and continuously fine tune their existing products to maximize revenue generation. RB-Actuarial is the answer. The Product Life Cycle tends to take a long time from research and ideation through validation, development, filings and production implementation. In most insurance companies, the process typically spans product management, actuarial, operation, regulatory and IT. Most insurers cannot apply the same tools that are used in the quoting platforms to the analytics process, therefore the best they can do is try and emulate what might happen when product is actually launched using Modeling tools. The key to success is to fix both of these issues. First, Speed up the Product innovation lifecycle by 10X and second, ensure that what is modeled = what is tested = what is implemented. These problems and more are solved with RB-Actuarial.

The Rise of Driving Data and What It Means for Credit, sponsored by Verisk
The advent of usage-based insurance driven by telematics has shown insurers the power of new data that may measure loss probability better than almost any one factor—even credit. Opposition has followed credit-based insurance scores since they first emerged in the 1990s. Driving data appears to show a way around such disputes, and some insurers have welcomed the potential reprieve, promising a shift away from credit. But can it be a one-for-one exchange? In this session, two Verisk experts – Jared Smollik and Adrian Cuc – will explore this question with a closer look at these two potentially highly predictive factors and how they may evolve, separately and in tandem.

Automating Indications: Better for Your Company and Better for You, Sponsored by WTW
Indications are an essential part of the pricing process but frequently can be time consuming and tedious. The insurer of the future needs frequent, timely, automated and integrated information to enable quick decision making. Our session will cover ways to streamline and automate the indications process, freeing up actuaries to focus on deeper analytical tasks.

Presenters:
Michael Chen, Associate Director
Scott Gibson, Manager
Madeline Main, Manager

Roundtables

The CAS will be offering four roundtables on Tuesday, March 15, from 12:30 – 1:15 p.m., ET. They are limited to 20 participants each. If you are interested in participating, please review this list of facilitators and topics. You may only pick one roundtable and we will honor the first 20 that register in each one, after which the registration for that roundtable will be closed.

Register

Take advantage of this opportunity to discuss a real-world challenge and earn CE credits. Space is limited. First-come, first-served.

RT-2: Collaborative A&A Communities with DEI in Mind

Facilitator: Matthew Duke

Interested in creating an actuarial and analytics community that is welcoming to all? Whether you are a leader, manager, individual contributor or volunteer, all members of a community play a role in shaping its culture. Join us in this roundtable discussion as we explore several facets of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and how they play.

RT-4: Blockchain & the Future of Ratemaking

Facilitator: Michael Payne

Blockchain has already made its way into the insurance industry.  It’s ability to provide increased trust, security, and transparency has made it a suitable technology to deliver proof of insurance, to improve claims handling, and to automate policy issuance.  But how will it help when it comes to ratemaking data and analyses?  This roundtable aims to discuss the possible benefits and hurdles of using blockchain technology to improve data quality and data sharing within the insurance industry.
