* Become a CCA Member for 2018 When You Register as a Nonmember Attendee for the Annual Meeting

If you have never been a CCA member and you’re planning to attend the CCA Annual Meeting, we have an amazing offer for you. The CCA offers a special arrangement for any nonmember attendee wishing to become a CCA member for the first time. Attendees who pay the nonmember fee, submit a completed CCA membership application between the Annual Meeting and November 30, 2017, and are approved for membership, receive a waiver of first-year membership dues (currently a savings of $425).

Take advantage of this special offer and you’ll have access to the CCA’s 2018 audio/webcast series, seminars and other meetings at member rates, and you’ll gain access to the CCA’s many community forums. You owe it to yourself and your career to sample these communities where you’ll stay on top of the latest developments in these varied, interesting, and sometimes volatile areas. At times, the community focus has been to help frame the national debate on actuarial issues for the profession.

A Green Annual Meeting

Since 2014, the CCA Annual Meeting has provided registered meeting attendees with online access to electronic versions of meeting materials immediately prior to the meeting and during the meeting through either the meeting app or the CCA website. Registered attendees receive specific instructions in advance of the meeting on how to access these materials.

If you require paper copies of handouts, you need to print your materials prior to your arrival at the CCA Annual Meeting. Printers are available in the Ritz-Carlton’s business office for charge to the individual.

Concurrent Sessions

We encourage you to register early as sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and sometimes close. We reserve the right to limit the number of registrations for individual sessions, as well as for the meeting. If you are not registering online, please complete and mail the session preference form to indicate your desired attendance in various sessions. Select a second and third choice for each time slot in case your first choice is not available.

Within two weeks of receiving your registration form accompanied by full payment, we’ll issue a confirmation that will provide you an opportunity to verify the details of your registration and session selections.

CCA’s Required Continuing Education Program

CCA members attending the Annual Meeting have the opportunity to earn up to 19 of the 30 required credits toward the 2017 continuing education requirement (including up to 4 professionalism credits) as every session qualifies for credit. We believe all sessions are applicable for credit under the Qualification Standards.

Click here for more information about the CCA's Required Continuing Education Program.

EA Continuing Education Requirement

Enrolled Actuaries can earn up to 17.5* credit hours of continuing education credits at the 2017 CCA Annual Meeting. All sessions that qualify for EA credit also qualify for EA Formal credit under the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries (JBEA) requirements. Total credits include 2.5* EA Core credits for the Tuesday afternoon session, “Professionalism in Theory and Practice.” The closing session, “A Tip of the Hat to Ethics” also qualifies for 1.5 EA Ethics credit.

*Please note that the proposed EA credits listed for all sessions in this brochure are subject to the final approval by the JBEA. When filing for renewal of enrollment with the JBEA or other credentialing organizations, it is the individual’s responsibility to determine any redundancy of topics and/or content between the sessions attended for each renewal period. As the sponsor of continuing education, we try to note sessions that might have significant overlap, but the ultimate responsibility for claiming credits rests with the individual actuary.

Cancellation Policy

As warranted by unforeseen events, CCA reserves the right to cancel the meeting. In the unlikely occurrence of such an event, registration fees charged by CCA will be refunded. However, CCA will not be held liable for any airline, hotel, or other penalties that may be assessed to attendees as a result of a potential cancellation.

No Session Recording

No sessions of the CCA Annual Meeting are recorded. As a condition of your attendance at the meeting, you agree not to audio or video record any portion of the educational sessions held at the meeting. Any violation of this condition may result in your ejection from the meeting without a refund of your registration fee. In addition, you agree that the CCA shall be entitled to any costs incurred as a result of any violation of this provision, including payment of CCA’s attorneys’ fees. Violators may be prohibited from attending future meetings/events.

Antitrust Policy

Applicability of Antitrust Laws

Professional societies, including the Conference of Consulting Actuaries, are subject to federal and state antitrust laws, and must constantly monitor their activities to ensure continued compliance with all antitrust regulations.

Purpose of Antitrust Laws

The antitrust laws prohibit any concerted activity or combination of competitors from interfering with free competition. In other words, the primary thrust of the law is to control private economic power by protecting competition. Persons and organizations are prohibited from engaging in any action which unreasonably restrains commerce or trade (i.e., competition). Per se violations (practices presumed to be inherently wrong regardless of the motivating factors) include: agreements to fix or stabilize prices, to divide markets, to allocate production, or to impose boycotts. In essence, this means any concerted action that significantly diminishes rivalry among competing firms.

The CCA’s Policy

The Board of Directors of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries intends adherence to the antitrust laws. The CCA provides guidance on compliance by regularly communicating to our membership, attendees at our continuing education offerings, and committee/task force meetings regarding both the applicability and purpose of antitrust laws.
