CCA Webinar Policy Expansion Aimed to Help Those Working Remotely

The Conference of Consulting Actuaries (CCA) understands that social distancing rules, remain in place orders, and other responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have changed the world in which we live. As an organization focused on delivering high-quality continuing education to our members and the profession at large, we already have a robust distance-learning webinar series with flexible pricing options for individuals and groups. However, in recognition of this new environment, we are modifying our webinar policy for group registrations to ensure that those who are now working from a home office can join with their co-workers and participate in leading-edge continuing education.
