Default Possible APC Date Change

I was supposed to attend the APC Course in May. It is my last requirement needed for my ASA. Now I am registered for the Chicago session in September. I was wondering if anyone in the Boston, Seattle, or NJ sessions from June-August would consider trading with me. I would still need to confirm this possibility with the SOA, but I believe they would be willing to accommodate it.

Dont think there is anyone who will trade for a later date. I am supposed to be on the April APC but got canceled an bump to Chicago in August. I think everyone has the same feeling, just be patient.

I know that it affected a lot of people. I just was not sure if there were people out there concerned about going to like Seattle or Boston - two cities hit pretty hard. Did not hurt to ask.

Should SOA convert APC requirement into something virtual? Is it really important to attend APC in person?

I have asked them if they would consider that and they said they believe the "in-person case studies are too critical"

That's so disappointing to hear.

Yeah I suggested a few things I thought would be fair to students during the pandemic, but the only thing they made it seem would be okay would be if I happened to trade a student in an earlier session.
