Actuarial Society 2017 Convention

17 – 18 October 2017
Sandton Convention Centre


The 44th Convention of the Actuarial Society of South Africa took place on 17 and 18 October at the Sandton Convention Centre, with the pre-convention African Seminar on 16 October and you can see the highlight video here.

Our annual convention is our primary vehicle for achieving the Society’s mission:

  • To ensure the relevance and enhance the role and reputation of the profession, both in South Africa and within the international actuarial community;
  • to develop the expertise and skills of members and expand these to meet new opportunities as conditions change;
  • to require that the professional conduct and skills of members meet the highest standards; and
  • to harness the expertise of our members to establish a position of thought leadership to inform public debate.

The Convention is also a vehicle to promote communication and debate about all aspects of actuarial practice, research, and education in South Africa and in this regard the Committee is developing an exceptional programme to ensure quality professional development opportunities. The Convention is a two-day event and with the continued growth of and engagement with our membership, we expect in excess of 1500 delegates to attend this year.

We have also put together a snapshot of the 2016 Convention which you can view here.
