Weekly COVID-19 Update – July 16

Dear Colleagues,

We do hope our members attended the Town Hall yesterday. You will note that our Board members are working towards creating a space where we can communicate more often and on topics of local, regional and global interest. It is important that we continue to engage each other and include other professionals. Let us all continue to contribute what we can to ensure that the CAA is always relevant in an ever-changing world.

We would like to change the format of this bulletin from August. In its present format it may have served its purpose. We welcome suggestions.

The Wednesday bulletin covers CAA and actuarial news. This Friday space is now used for tracking COVID-19 and we can add any other area on which we need to focus.

We will continue to filter the myriad of available information to guide you towards those areas that we all agree are of interest in our region and worldwide.
