Presentation Information & Guidelines
- The Society of Actuaries is continuing to make efforts toward a more paperless meeting approach. As a result, we try to post as many presentations as possible on our web site and also in the mobile app in advance of the meeting. The use of presentation slides, advance discussion notes and visual aids contributes to the effectiveness, clarity and educational value of your presentation and is expected by attendees. The attendees may want to download or print out the presentation to bring to the meeting, or there may be materials you want to have available prior to the meeting.
- The Society of Actuaries has antitrust guidelines that you must follow when preparing any meeting materials. Read the SOA Antitrust Compliance Guidelinescarefully. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your responsibility and liability, please contact our office.
- The moderator of each session is encouraged to arrange a conference call with all session presenters prior to the meeting
- A laptop will be available for each session with your presentation loaded if it was provided by the deadline; please bring your presentation(s) on a USB flash drive as a back-up plan.
- All presentations (including materials that were received late along with those that have been amended) will be posted for general viewing on the SOA website after the meeting.
There are many resources available on the SOA Web site to assist you in planning your presentation. Please visit the Professional Development Volunteer Resource Center for available tools. Make sure to review the copyright tips for presenting at SOA programs which is available as a resource.
