At the last Spring Meeting of the German Actuarial Association in April 2016 we launched our first merchandise mug in favor of the charity campaign “Actuaries For Actuaries”. For our next mug we have asked you to send us your ideas for slogans.
Now it’s your turn again: Vote for the best slogan!
We will announce your favorite slogan in our next newsletter and will use it for the branding of our next ICA 2018 mug which will be available at the ICA 2018-booths at the next events we are visiting.
In our new series we want to introduce the seven locations and the program of the limited attendance experiences available at the ICA 2018. The first issue features the Ottobock Science Center, located at the Potsdamer Platz.
The Science Center Berlin represents the medtech company Ottobock in the capital city. At first glance, the modern architecture of the building – also known as the “muscle house” – catches the visitor’s attention. Approximately 100,000 people visit the Science Center every year. Continue reading →
With around 12.5 million visitors a year Berlin ranks as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. From the famous landmark of the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol for the division and unification of Germany, to the Reichstag, the seat of the German government – the city has many interesting sights to offer. With the Highlights Tour on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon you will get the perfect introduction to Berlin’s centre and its most famous landmarks.
We proudly present today: Our new 2 minute ICA 2018 invitation video!
Klaus Heubeck, chair of the ICA 2018 national organising committee, explains what you can expect from the ICA 2018 and why you should attend the event at any costs. The video also features beautiful impressions of Berlin, the vibrant capital of Germany.
We would kindly like to thank our Platinum partner RGA for their great support to produce this video!

A big thank you to all South African Actuaries who have visited the ICA 2018 booth at the ASSA Convention 2016 in Cape Town. Attendees were asked to participate in the prize draw “I am 100,000″ and the quiz game “Who’s gonna be an ICA Millionaire”. Participating paid off: In total more than 14,000,000 I₡A were raised for the Actuaries For Actuaries fund. The money will be used to finance extra scholarships for actuaries from emerging countries or smaller actuarial associations.
We thank the Actuarial Association of South Africa for sponsoring the quiz game during the ASSA Convention 2016. Roseanne da Silva, president of the Actuarial Association of South Africa and Wilhelm Schneemeier, president of the Deutsche Aktuarvereinigung. Continue reading →
The ICA 2018 will be the first ICA in history which will be enriched with virtual formats. Participants who join the Virtual ICA 2018 (VICA 2018) will get the chance to take part in various online sessions with self-study materials prior to the ICA, live broadcasting during the congress and online discussions after the lectures. Further information on the Virtual ICA 2018 can be found in due course online.
As part of the VICA 2018, national associations can enrich the scientific program with country specific online sessions. The so-called National Partner Program enables national actuaries to participate, even if they cannot be present in Berlin personally. We are pleased to announce that the Actuarial Society of South Africa has decided to support the project as the first national partner. The contract was signed during the Actuarial Society’s Convention 2016 in Cape Town.
