Join Pinnacle for the CAS Midwest Actuarial Forum’s Fall Meeting

The Midwest Actuarial Forum (MAF) will hold its Fall Meeting at the Marriott Hotel in Normal, Illinois on Friday, September 16th. As Vice-President of the MAF, I’m excited about bringing this dynamic organization to central Illinois. It’s a wonderful and convenient opportunity for local actuaries to come together, learn and meet fellow professionals from other companies, as well as pick up some valuable continuing education (including professionalism).The Fall Meeting will be a full day of presentations and networking, including breakfast and lunch. 

Presentation topics will range from adverse reserve development, the role of reinsurance actuaries and general industry trends, to a session by incoming Casualty Actuarial Society President-Elect Brian Brown. Best of all, the meeting is entirely free of charge. We welcome anyone interested in learning about the field, from credentialed actuaries to academics and students. We’re pleased to be offering a concurrent presentation tailored specifically to university students, who will be matched with credentialed actuaries to help them learn more about the career path. We’re also looking forward to announcing the two winners of our first-ever scholarship contest. 

Pinnacle Actuarial Resources is headquartered in nearby Bloomington, Illinois and will be well represented at the Fall Meeting. Consulting Actuaries Erich Brandt and Greg Fears will present, “Causes of Recent Adverse Development,” along with Kevin Ahlgrim from Illinois State University. Rob Walling will be speaking during our Pinnacle-sponsored lunch. Additional Pinnacle staff will also attend the meeting, including four of our Actuarial Analysts who will be participating in their first CAS event. We hope you will stop by our Pinnacle booth or say hello to any of us at the meeting. We’re all looking forward to seeing you there!
