Default 2018 CAS Quinquennial Survey Report

Thread for discussion.

Task Force report is here: https://www.casact.org/cms/files/201...port_v21_1.pdf

Copy of the 2 versions of the survey here: https://www.casact.org/cms/files/Surveys_A___B.pdf


Any surprises?
Any conclusions/recommendations with which you strongly (dis)agree?


(Disclosure: I haven't read the report yet.)

What are the next steps to let ACAS's have the right to vote?

That would require a Bylaws change, which has to be put on a ballot & approved by (a certain % of) Fellows.

MAP recently surveyed members' preferences on different options for ACAS voting (e.g. all ACASs, ACAS after X years, etc). I'd guess that would inform any proposed Bylaws amendment.

Step 1: Find out if those in favor of the idea will actually vote for it. I suspect that those against might have a higher likelihood of actually casting a vote.

Step 1 was noticing that a lot of fellows support the idea
Step 2 is surveying MAP to see what voting rights are more or less popular among fellows -- they don't want to put it on the ballot unless they expect it to win.

So, for instance, should associates:
vote as soon as they are members?
vote after some # years of membership?
vote for president?
vote for the board?
vote on bylaw changes?

After they review the results of THAT survey, they will likely write up a bylaw amendment, and send it to the FCAS members for a vote.

I am not sure the survey report addressed this.

Where does TBE on upper level exams sit?

What about offering exams 7 through 9 twice a year?

I've reviewed it. Nothing jumped out at me as surprising. I am surprised at how hard the CAS is working to be "present in social media" given how few members want to interact with the CAS via social media. But that means I wasn't surprised that the survey confirmed my belief that even members who are active on Facebook mostly don't want to interact with the CAS on Facebook.

I was not surprised that members are clamoring for more free sources of CE. And I was only mildly surprised to see how popular it is to give the vote to associates. My guess is that the merger-that-didn't-happen affected those numbers. Suddenly, it looks like there might be issues to vote on that really matter to ACAS that have nothing to do with exams, credentialing, etc.

Yeah the merger was the big one. ACAS's would have been significantly impacted by the merger and didn't have a say in it.
