COVID-19 Weekly Update – January 29

Dear Colleagues,

WOW! We’ve reached a hundred million cases worldwide!

For most of us, this was a normal business week. Feedback from vaccine programs worldwide and further lockdowns in response to new strains of COVID-19 have dominated the headlines. The effect on Europe has been rioting in response to further lockdowns.

Florida has a new tourism product – vaccine tourism. Many Jamaicans, and presumably the wider Caribbean, have been travelling to Florida to be vaccinated.

COVID-19 Update – December 18

Season Greetings to our Members, Colleagues and Friends.

This is our last update for 2020. We will resume posting on the 5th of January 2021 with the next COVID-19 update on the 8th of January. We look forward to continuing our meaningful rapport in 2021.

We encourage you to access our conference presentations on actuview. Please send us your comments, especially on the pre-recorded sessions.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Our festive season is going to be very different than what we are accustomed too. We will still enjoy time with our loved ones though this year some get-togethers will be by Zoom.

Please visit our website, Facebook page and LinkedIn page.

Thank you. Stay safe and happy.

News Update – December 11

Dear Colleagues,

We took a break for our Virtual Conference. We hope that you were able to attend and that you enjoyed all the sessions. We wish to keep the dialogue going, especially on the current topics and the thought-provoking presentations.  The CAA thanks the participants, presenters, sponsors and organisers.

All presentations are now available on actuview. All members have been given access codes. If you are unable to recall your code then please search your inbox for “your actuview code”.

We also have quite a few presentations that were pre-recorded as we could not fit them all in the live sessions. We would appreciate your feedback to share with those presenters.

I have deliberately left out weekend reading as I encourage everyone to explore our sessions.

Enjoy your weekend.

Please visit our website, Facebook page and LinkedIn page.

Thank you.
