Good idea.

I think it's about half of that for 8. Mahler made a post about the new manual given the syllabus changes, said it will be available in two parts. The old manual was just over 2000 pages.

Naive question: what's the "requirement" for attending the '19 annual meeting? Do you have to get FCAS-credentialed? Would ACAS do? What if you get your credential too early?

I don't stand a chance to get FCAS before 2019 without some sort of double-up.

If you mean what the requirements are for the CAS to recognize you at the meeting, then they do it for both ACAS and FCAS. If you mean what the requirements are to actually go, well...that's kind of up to your company. I can't imagine a company wouldn't pay all your travel and fees for getting FCAS, and it seems like most would do it for ACAS as well.

But I haven't heard of anyone who's "deferred" their recognition just to go to a better location

The requirement is paying the registration fee.
