Continuing Education Credit

SOA Continuing Professional Development

The sessions at this event meet the basic SOA requirements provisions and may be suitable to meet the provisions of an Alternative Compliance standard (please consult the appropriate standard).

Below is the maximum number of credits you could receive, based upon your individual sessions:

  • 7.8 credits for the seminars and 16.5 credits for the Symposium can be applied towards the “Qualification Standard for Actuaries Issuing Statements of Actuarial Opinion” and our “SOA Continuing Professional Development Requirement.”

Ultimately, it is the member’s responsibility to make a reasonable, good-faith determination as to whether a continuing education event meets the CPD Requirement.

Visit the SOA website for more information on fulfilling your
CPD requirements.

CAS CE Credit

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 16.5 CE Credits for the Symposium, 7.8 CE Credits for Seminars and up to 1.2 CE hours for the roundtables 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.

*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.

CIA CPD Requirement

Adopted in June 2008, the CIA’s Continuing Professional Development Qualification Standard identifies the minimum Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements that members must meet, pursuant to Rule 2 of the CIA Rules of Professional Conduct, in order to perform professional services.

This symposium may be suitable to meet the CIA’s CPD requirements. Ultimately, it is the member’s responsibility to make a reasonable, good-faith determination as to whether a continuing education event meets the CPD Requirement. Participants should claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity and may include these hours towards their 2013 CPD Requirements for filing in early 2014.

PRMIA Risk Education and Training

PRMIA does not require continuing education for PRM designates, however, we do encourage all members to attend valuable course-relevant conferences such as the ERM Symposium. For more information on PRMIA’s risk education and training opportunities, visit the PRMIA Web site.

U.S. Qualification Standard

The Qualification Standard for Actuaries Issuing Statements of Actuarial Opinion in the United States (US Qualification Standard) took effect Jan. 1, 2008.

The SOA believes that this symposium may be suitable for filling this requirement as continuing education under the US Qualification standard. Ultimately, it is an actuary’s responsibility to make a reasonable, good-faith determination of what CE opportunities will enhance his or her ability to practice in a desired field.

For further information on this requirement, please visit the American Academy of Actuaries Web site.

Suggested Attire

Business casual attire is suggested for all sessions as well as receptions. Since meeting room temperatures and personal comforts vary, it is recommended that you bring a sweater or jacket to the sessions. In Chicago, the average high temperature during April is approximately 64 degrees and the average low is approximately 45 degrees.

Paperless Symposium

Green seminars incorporate solutions designed to minimize negative impacts on the environment. The ERM Symposium has taken a step in that direction by making the event “paperless,” which means:

  • Paper copies of session handouts will not be provided in the meeting rooms.
  • Paper copies of the list of attendees will not be distributed, though a few copies will be available for review at the Symposium registration desk.

Session slides will be posted on the ERM Symposium website in advance of the symposium so that attendees can download, print, and bring handouts as desired. Please note that not every presenter will choose to provide a presentation for his/her session.

Once at the ERM Symposium, attendees are encouraged to use the complimentary “Cyber Café” to view the list of attendees and download presentations to a USB flash drive for the sessions they attend. The ERM Symposium appreciates your participation in this effort to reduce the seminar’s carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
