I know it's "still being considered", but I was just curious if anyone's happened to hear anything about it.
Milliman presented a handful of their Val Act sessions as webinars (I attended two), but otherwise I haven't heard anything. I'm definitely in need of some more CE credits.

Were those publicly available, or at least, available to Milliman's clients? Or was that just an internal presentation?

I'm planning to go to the L&H Qualification Seminar, but I'd still like to see some of the presentations from some of the topics I signed up for.

I think they reached out to people that were signed up for the sessions and some of their local clients. Not sure what the public availability would be now for the presentations.

Whoa. That's a bit surprising.

But ValAct 2.0 only for 1 day (2 half-days). Wonder which sessions they're able to put on.
