The CAS recently launched a new student membership program designed to provide students with resources and expertise to help make the transition from the classroom to a career as a casualty actuary. CAS Student Central exemplifies the CAS’s dedication to university students and its commitment to guide students through the maze of curricula and rigorous exams that ultimately lead to a challenging and rewarding career.
In conjunction with launching the new student membership program, the CAS unveiled a new website, www.CASstudentcentral.org, providing a centralized location for student members to access information as they embark on the path to earning CAS credentials. There is no membership fee required to join CAS Student Central, and membership is automatically renewed each year.
Additionally, the CAS Student Central online community allows members to stay connected with other actuarial students and the broader network of credentialed CAS members. Accessible only by members of CAS Student Central, the online community features a blog, Future Focus, which will share insights, tips, and perspectives from practicing casualty actuaries, university professors, students, and others. We are looking for guest contributions and topic suggestions for the blog; please feel free to contact me if you are willing to contribute.
Students who join CAS Student Central will have access to a portal that will help them achieve their full professional potential. CAS provides student members with tools to thrive as they work towards joining the more than 6,000 credentialed casualty actuaries who have made the CAS their professional home.
