Thumbs up Are you going to the 2008 CAS Annual Meeting in Seattle?

Choose wisely.



Edit: By "not credentialed" I mean "not ACAS or FCAS." I forgot to put option for credentialed non-P&C actuaries

For you Starbucks fans, have an original "Pike Place Blend" at the original Starbucks.

Though I'm not much of a "fan," I'll have to check the original out. Thanks, WG.

Yep. New ACAS. Your poll's likely biased toward new ACAS/FCAS, since others aren't likely to be reading the exam fora. Except maybe Arlie Proctor.

Anyone know if Arlie Proctor's going to be at the annual meeting?

I don't think it will taste much different. Still sort of cool to check out though as it feels a bit different from the prototypical SBUX. I took some pictures when I was there a couple months ago.

Btw, CtC, can we throw you a personal party for all the help you've given this forum? I feel like I owe you at least 50% of my exam raise.
