Settle in with us for “More Tales From the Dark Side: Ethical Cases at the ABCD.” Highly attended and popular last December, this next iteration explores examples of ethical problems based on cases that have been brought before the Actuarial Board for Counseling and Discipline (ABCD).
In the course of performing their work, actuaries are sometimes confronted with ethical issues that are difficult to resolve. Our presenters—both ABCD members—describe the reference points actuaries should look to in each case to stay on the right side of the Code of Professional Conduct. They also discuss the information and guidance the ABCD has provided to practicing actuaries in such situations through the ABCD’s request for guidance process. Join this professionalism webinar, and learn how to avoid going over to the dark side.
We believe in good faith that attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 1.8 continuing education (CE) credits and 1.8 core ethics continuing professionalism education credits under Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries rules (click here for more information).

The American Academy of Actuaries believes in good faith that attendance at this live professionalism webinar constitutes an organized activity as defined under the current Qualification Standards for Actuaries Issuing Statements of Actuarial Opinion in the United States, and that attendees may earn up to 1.8 CE credits for attending this live webinar.

We also believe in good faith that Enrolled Actuaries may earn 1.8 continuing professionalism education (CPE) core ethics credits under the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries (JBEA) rules for attending this live webinar. However, the JBEA ultimately determines what constitutes core, non-core, ethics, or non-ethics continuing education and the number of CPE credit hours allocated to same for enrolled actuaries.

In order to receive a JBEA CE Certificate of Attendance you must attend the live event, follow the instructions provided during the live event, and request your certificate by completing the online form within 30 days of attending the live event.
