Presentation Information and Guidelines

The moderator of each session is encouraged to arrange a conference call with all session speakers prior to the annual meeting. If you have not received yet a call from either the moderator or lead speaker of your session, please notify Caroline Thebault

The Canadian Institute of Actuaries strongly urges all speakers to use presentation materials. While it is not mandatory to use the CIA Annual Meeting Template, it is highly recommended to ensure a consistent format for the entire meeting.  

We request that all presentations be submitted as original PowerPoint files. They will be converted to PDF files and available on the CIA meeting app and in the Proceedings section of the CIA website after the event. If you do not intend to have a presentation or handouts for your session, please notify Caroline Thebault
