On behalf of the organising committee, I am delighted to welcome you to the website for the New Zealand Society of Actuaries' 2018 Conference.
The conference is due to be held in Queenstown between 28 and 31 October 2018, and we hope many of you will be able to join us for a thought-provoking and engaging event in one of New Zealand's most iconic locations, famed for innovation, pushing boundaries and adventure.
The conference's theme 'The Remarkable Future' encourages us to explore what the future holds for the actuarial profession, in a world where change is getting faster, technological advances are ever more rapid and the world has never been more connected. It challenges us to ask ourselves how we can innovate, embrace change and adapt to ensure our place in this remarkable future.
The programme will commence on the evening of Sunday 28 October and will conclude by the middle of the day on Wednesday 31 October. It will comprise a number of plenary sessions with inspiring and thought-provoking external speakers, as well as a range of concurrent sessions which will provide plenty of opportunity for delegates and members to present papers and hear from their peers. The programme will also feature a number of social and networking events, including a welcome function on Sunday night, a relaxed evening event on Monday night and a formal gala dinner on Tuesday night. And of course, we will be making the most of the range of exciting activities Queenstown has to offer, with a choice of afternoon activities on Tuesday afternoon.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 NZSA Conference in Queenstown!
Convenor, NZSA Conference Committee
