The U.S. actuarial profession largely regulates itself – meaning it enjoys the privilege and obligation of managing the professional conduct of its individual members. That it has remained self-regulating for so long is a testament to the success of the Code of Professional Conduct in maintaining the public’s trust in the integrity and competence of the credentialed actuary.
However, the obligation of maintaining the profession’s self-regulating status by adhering to the Code’s high standards rests on the shoulders of each individual actuary.
Join us to hear actuaries with extensive experience in the realm of actuarial professionalism discuss your responsibilities under the Code, with a special emphasis on your obligation to act as a representative of your profession when you have knowledge of an apparent, unresolved, material violation of the Code by another actuary.

We also believe in good faith that Enrolled Actuaries (EAs) may earn up to 1.8 continuing professional 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. All EAs who want to receive a Certificate of Attendance must be registered either as an individual attendee or listed as part of a group registration and must submit their request within two business days of the event. You are still required to attest to your actual attendance for the full webinar to receive full JBEA credit.
- Please note that the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries’ (JBEA) temporary waiver of the “physical presence” requirement ended on Dec. 31, 2022. Consequently, in order for attending EAs to receive Formal JBEA CPD credit for attending this program, the EA must simultaneously participate in the live program in the same physical location with at least two other participants engaged in substantive pension service. Groups of three or more participants who are in the same physical location may participate via the internet, video conferencing, or teleconferencing.
