Submission of Presentations via CAS Online Session Submission Webform

The CAS asks that you submit your proposal to our Online Session Submission Webform.

PLEASE NOTE: As a general policy, CAS educational events and programs are paperless and attendees will need time in advance of the events to download presentations.

    Therefore, we kindly request that you adhere to any deadlines for submitting your presentation.

    1. All materials should be prepared accordingly:

    • Title page listing session number, title and author(s)
    • Please be sensitive to printing concerns and refrain from using slides which require excessive ink.

    2. If you are using excerpts, including data from third party vendors, please be aware that some require advanced permission to reproduce from the original author(s). It is your responsibility to secure all such written permission.

    3. On the slides you submit for attendees to print it is suggested that you use page numbers and plain white/clear backgrounds for each slide for the following reasons:

    • Attendees use page numbers to assist them in following the presentation
    • Attendees use less ink when printing slides with white/clear backgrounds
    • Attendees are better able to view printed slides with white/clear backgrounds

    Presentation Content Guidelines

You have obtained all necessary permissions and/or licenses from any individual or organizations whose material is included or used in your presentation.
    • You will not include content that may affect adversely the reputation of CAS or the actuarial profession, as determined based on CAS’ sole discretion.

    • Whether a fee should be charged for a particular activity or services (for example, fees for initial consultations or for time commuting to a meeting with a client);
    • Dividing up clients among competitors in a particular geographic area, or by area of actuarial expertise; Specific suggestions about limiting the availability of services that the actuary should agree to provide based on whether the client contracts for an additional level or types of service (for example, agreeing to provide a ratemaking product only if the client agrees to contract for other actuarial services);
    • Any suggestion that an actuary should refuse to provide a particular actuarial service, or to work for a particular employer or client;
    • Any suggestions about the appropriateness of actuaries undertaking work which is generally regarded to be within the providence of another profession (for example, accountants, auditors, or attorneys) or vice versa;
