General Information

Overview

On November 7, 1914 the Casualty Actuarial and Statistical Society held its first meeting in New York City with 97 charter members as Fellows. Now 100 years later with more than 6,200 members, the Casualty Actuarial Society is back in the Big Apple to celebrate our first century and explore the challenges and opportunities that face us in the next. The CAS Centennial Celebration and Annual Meeting will give property/casualty actuaries and other insurance professionals the opportunity to earn continuing education credits in a variety of sessions covering relevant and timely topics necessary for continued professional growth and maintaining actuarial credentials. Special events to celebrate the CAS Centennial will allow attendees to connect with colleagues, including many retired members, at a hotel conveniently located in the heart of Manhattan.

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 17.3 CE Credits for the Annual Meeting 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.

Paperless Meeting

This year’s CAS Annual Meeting will be “paperless,” i.e., there will not be any session handouts. Session slides will be posted on the CAS website in advance so attendees may print and bring handouts as desired.

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.

Suggested Attire

Casual business attire is suggested for the conference sessions and the sunday night reception. Apparel for Tuesday night’s Gala is Business Attire. It is best to wear layered clothing as meeting rooms tend to fluctuate in temperature.

In New York City, the average high temperature during November is 53 degrees F and the average low is 33 degrees F.
