From October 19th through the 21st and the 26th through the 28th, 2020, over 700 leading actuaries came together from around the world for yet another record-breaking Annual Meeting. This was a momentous juncture in the history of the organization – as circumstances inevitably led to the meeting being conducted in a way it never had been before: virtually. This meeting was a testament to the resilience of CCA’s leadership, its volunteers, members, meeting attendees, as well as the collective spirit of consulting actuaries everywhere. There is no question that the first-ever virtual CCA Annual Meeting will not soon be forgotten.
Of the 70 sessions held covering multiple practice areas, notable sessions included Monday morning’s opening general session where keynote speaker Dr. Tasha Eurich discussed her groundbreaking research examining the notion of achieving self-awareness and how to apply self-awareness techniques to our lives and professional journeys, as well as highly rated sessions such as Social Security – What You Need to Know, Stop Loss: A Deeper Dive, and ASOPs for Public Plans. Yet, these are just a few examples of the program’s panoply of relevant and engaging educational experiences.
CCA would like to extend special thanks to the Annual Meeting Program Committee, as well as its Chair – James Jones, for their hard work on the implementation of the program. Suffice it to say this meeting was unlike any other in so many ways and to have made it so phenomenal was no small feat. Join us next year in person from October 24-27 for the 2021 CCA Annual Meeting at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona.
