ACOPA Chicago Symposium 2018
The ACOPA Chicago Symposium is coming up!
It is an honor to serve on the symposium conference committee with such dedicated volunteers, who want to bring the best educational experience to all who attend the symposium. If comments from attendees at prior conferences are any guide, the reasons one would attend the upcoming Chicago Symposium are:
- Continuing education/topics presented
Chicago is a great choice in August — warm, but not too hot — but let’s be honest, we are really there for the continuing education. We have reviewed the suggestions on the topics you would like to see. So this year we have scheduled discussion of:
- Ethics (get your required two hours)
The symposium format provides plenty of opportunities to participate. In an effort to improve that participation, this year we have a link through which one may submit questions for the “Ask the Experts” session. We will also have more microphones in the audience to make it easier to speak up.
Another change this year is that more time has been scheduled during the breaks than in previous symposia to allow for more networking opportunities. This is a wonderful chance to build relationships that will give more back to you than just the continuing education opportunity.
And you can earn up to 16 hours JBEA, ASPPA, ERPA CE (including two hours of ethics).
The ACOPA Chicago Symposium will be held on Aug. 10-11 at the Doubletree by Hilton on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, at 300 East Ohio Street. Registration is now open at https://www.asppa.org/Conferences/ACOPA-Actuarial-Symposium
We look forward to seeing you there. And now a parting Haiku:
