Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Participation in the Actuarial Society’s Convention can count toward a member’s CPD requirements.

The new CPD system that is being phased in focusses on personal growth rather than compliance. It is therefore key to study the Convention programme beforehand to choose sessions which will be useful to your personal development plan. The thrust of the new CPD system 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 CPD survey highlighted as an area where most actuaries can improve. So, if this is on your development list, make sure you attend the social events and mingle!

Please visit the Society’s website for further information on the CPD policy:
