Actuary-to-actuary communications play an important role in how we discharge our responsibilities to the profession and the public. There are times when these communications entail uncomfortable conversations with another actuary. This webinar on actuary-to-actuary communications explored how the Code of Professional Conduct and other elements of our professionalism framework can help you conduct these difficult, but necessary, conversations.

Academy President Bob Beuerlein, Cecil Bykerk of the Council on Professionalism, and Janet Fagan, past chairperson of the Actuarial Board for Counseling and Discipline (ABCD), discussed relevant Precepts of the Code and standards of practice. They shared and explored a variety of examples, including examples of issues that have come to the ABCD’s attention, giving attendees insights on how the Code, standards of practice, and other professionalism tools can help guide successful actuary-to-actuary communication.

Attendees had the opportunity to earn up to 1.8 continuing education (CE) credits and JBEA CPE credits (see below for more information).
