    property, casualty and similar risk exposures;
  • To expand the application of actuarial science to enterprise risks and systemic risks;
  • To establish and maintain standards of qualification for membership;
  • To promote and maintain high standards of conduct and competence;
  • To increase the awareness of actuarial science;
  • And, to contribute to the well-being of society as a whole

Question Title

* 1. Submission of Presentations via CAS Online Session Submission System

The CAS asks that you submit your presentation to our Online Session Submission System. Events organized by CAS regional and international affiliates may have alternative presentation submission channels. 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
