The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) and the CPCU Society, an affiliate of The Institutes, invite you to be a part of the 2018 Underwriting Collaboration Seminar scheduled for June 26-27, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
To submit a session for 2018 Underwriting Collaboration Seminar, create an account below or log in to finalize and submit a draft or additional sessions.
The Committee strives to construct a rich program addressing issues, applications and insight across a broad spectrum of professional practices and fostering cross-pollination and collaboration of risk management professionals without regard to an industry sector or geographic location.
Presentations that serve as a critical review or reflection on underwriting and actuarial collaboration today are particularly encouraged. The following is a sample list of topics and/or potential presentations of greatest relevance to the Committee; it is not exhaustive. Other topics relating to underwriting are also welcome:
- Actuary and Underwriter Toolsets and Technology
- Behavioral Economics Applied to Insurance
- Big Data (How can underwriters use this information)
- Communication between the Actuary and Underwriter
- Changes in Terms and Conditions
- How to Factor changes for reserves and rates?)
- Emerging Issues (Telematics; Drones; Cyber)
- How to help Underwriters make decisions - Workflow and Process
- Implementing predictive modeling (Regulatory restraints)
- Peer To Peer Insurance
- Predictive Modeling - Psychology of an Underwriter
The planning committee is giving particular attention to submissions that follow an interactive non-traditional group learning format:
- Hinging on the idea that social interaction that makes learning stick, the planning committee is arranging at least five facilitated discussion hours for actuaries and underwriters within specific insurance fields.
- These facilitated events will take place throughout the seminar and will provide a platform for insurance professionals to discuss issues, learn and network.
- The goal of each learning lounge is to go through group networking exercises that would allow attendees to discuss a set of problems amongst each other.
The Committee is issuing this call to solicit ideas for professional content and identify outstanding speakers for the 2018 event.
