Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Participation in the Actuarial Society Convention can count toward a member’s CPD requirements.
The new CPD system focuses on personal growth rather than compliance. It is therefore key to study the convention program beforehand to choose sessions which will be useful to your personal development plan. The thrust of the new CPD systme is to develop yourself by identifying areas of need, acquiring these new capabilities, and then incorporating and honing them in your practice.
By the way, interpersonal skills are something that our recent stakeholders survey highlighted as an area where most actuaries can improve. So if this is on your development list, make sure you attend the social functions and mingle!
Please visit the Society’s website for further information on the CPD policy: http://www.actuarialsociety.org.za/Professionalresources/CPDrequirements.aspx.
