Is it safe to assume NAIC asked (implicitly) for the merger?

Also, CAS does need (or may make?) some changes/improvements to its exam readings?

SOA should be "beefing up the GI track to meet the standards of the NAIC" instead of wasting time/money on this useless merger talk. I am tired of hearing FSA<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<FCAS.

Can't you or a group of people (perhaps a group of ex CAS leaders) inform all the CAS members through e-mail the downside of the merger? Is that not an allowed use of CAS directory?

There is a very famous CAS actuary telling people not to go for actuarial credentials, if you are not in "signing..." , instead go for "data science"... That is just one person, though.

All those CAS members who don't like this merger idea should inform the board before the meeting. Then the CAS board can kill it right there.
