Welcome to the 2019 IAA Colloquium
It is with great pleasure that the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA) invites you to the 2019 IAA Colloquium, jointly hosted by ASSA and 5 sections (ASTIN, IAAHS, IAALS, IACA, PBSS) of the International Actuarial Association (IAA). The colloquium will be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from 2 to 5 April 2019.
We have chosen as the theme for the Colloquium – The Modern Actuary: Challenge, Influence, Lead.
This is a very apt theme, given the role that actuaries play in modern society. Not only have we shown and continue to show that we adapt to changing circumstances, but we should challenge existing ways of thinking and influence and lead towards a better society.
The aim of the colloquium is to present a forum for showcasing achievements, solving problems, sharing knowledge and generally broadening the knowledge base of actuaries in a wide range of practice areas.
Against the backdrop of the splendour and beauty of Table Mountain and surroundings, at the state of the art conference facilities of the CTICC, we will explore the congress theme. Presentations and discussions will be focused around this central theme, with opportunities to attend various plenary and breakaway sessions. To this end the Scientific Committee will be working towards compiling a relevant and exciting program with both local and international speakers.
The Colloquium will be held in conjunction with the local South African practice area seminars, which will each run for a full day. As well as this full day seminar, each section will be treated with 2 additional days of exciting sessions, which will include a social event and a gala dinner. Whilst there will be the option to register for the seminar only (mainly aimed at local delegates not wanting to attend the full event), delegates also have the option to register for the whole event. Each section event will span 3 of the 4 days.
The Organising Committee look forward to welcoming you all, to teach, learn and laugh together at the 2019 colloquium.
See you there

Peter Withey – President: ASSA
