Casualty Actuarial Society Ratemaking Seminar Set for March 11-12

February 19, 2004

The issues driving the medical malpractice crisis will be among the topics addressed at the annual Ratemaking Seminar of the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), March 11-12, at the Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel in Philadelphia.

The seminar provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of ratemaking methods, concepts and issues. Sessions are available for insurance professionals with ratemaking knowledge levels that vary from limited to advanced. Due to the proximity of many actuarial students to the Philadelphia area, the 2004 seminar will feature an expanded basic track. This seminar also provides an opportunity for actuaries to further their continuing education.

A general session will feature a discussion of the current medical malpractice crisis and the underwriting cycle in general. Representatives of the medical profession, insurance industry, and the trial bar will participate in a discussion of the issues driving this crisis. The opportunity for audience participation will also be provided.

Over 50 different concurrent sessions will be offered covering the following topics:

*data management and technology
*workers’ compensation
*commercial lines
*personal lines
*risk and capital management
*specialty topics

The fee for the seminar is $650 for active candidates, Affiliates, Associates and Fellows of the CAS, $750 for non-CAS members and $325 for government employees, if received on or before Feb. 25. Fees increase $50 after this date.
