The SOA has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and, based on recent developments, we have decided to cancel the Life & Annuity Symposium (LAS) that was scheduled for May 3-5 in St. Louis as well as the So You Decided to Become a Pricing Actuary: What You Need to Know Seminar that was to take place on May 6.
We made this decision based on the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other governmental authorities and to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone involved in this event, including our attendees, presenters, SOA staff and other support personnel.
We know that the COVID-19 situation in affecting your personal and professional lives in many ways and we appreciate your patience and support as we work together to find solutions to the issues this situation is creating and to move our profession forward.

Hotel Pirate Warning
Please Note: Should you receive a phone call or email requesting you make your hotel reservation or upgrade your reservation through an outside party (or a party saying they represent the hotel) for a different rate, please do not comply. Book your room directly with the hotel.
Often these vendors will add fees that could substantially inflate your costs and expose the organization to penalties for not meeting our room block commitment. The SOA and hotel are unable to confirm or guarantee any reservation that is not made directly through the hotel.
Confirmation of your hotel reservation is provided by the hotel. If you have not received a confirmation number prior to your departure for St. Louis, please call the hotel to make sure your reservation is in order.
Hotel Check-In and Checkout
Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. and checkout time is 11:00 a.m. Those arriving early may check their bags with the bell desk in the hotel lobby.
During check-in all guests will be asked to verify their departure date. At that time, you may change your departure date without penalty. Any guest who departs before the confirmed departure date may be charged an early departure fee.
