GS1: All Hands on Deck: Risk Management and the U.S. Navy
Whether you sit at a desk in an office on dry land or serve our country aboard a naval carrier far from shore, effective risk management is vital to success. Similar to the insurance industry, the US Navy aims to foster a proactive culture of excellence that encourages risk management, problem-solving and critical thinking. During this session, Admiral Bird will discuss how the US Navy uses effective risk management at all levels within the Department of the Navy.

SPECIAL IN-PERSON ONLY SCREENING of the new documentary, "Elemental" about wildfire in the American West.
Since 2017, wildfires have impacted the insurance industry like never before. As industry professionals, you likely have experience in modeling or pricing wildfire related risks, or you may have witnessed the devastation wildfires can bring to communities. We think it is important to have opportunities for our industry to continue to learn and converse about wildfire – to share ideas, voice concerns, and work together to solve some of the challenges brought by this peril.
While Elemental has been shown at film festivals across the country this year, we wanted to give you a convenient opportunity to experience the movie and participate in a discussion with the goal of sparking conversation about the topics raised by the short film.
NOTE: Join filmmaker Ralph Bloemers and actor/research contributor, Dr. Alexanda Syphard for (CE worthy) discussion immediately following the movie's end credits on Tuesday, March 14. Our sponsor, Milliman, will provide treats for this Watch Party and deep dive into the topic of wildfire. RSVP by 5:00 pm, PT on March 14 to give us a headcount for planning purposes by scanning the QR code or completing this form.
Monday, March 13 from 3:30 – 5:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time

In this tutorial session, Brian will cover the basics of using version control with git and GitHub. You will understand the business case for introducing these tools into your actuarial workflow and how to get started. You will learn how git differs from other backup and change management procedures and the benefits this offers. You will then learn how to arrange a set of files, start making and tracking changes, and document the evolution of your work. Finally, you will push your work to the cloud and see how your contributions are visible and accessible to others. Attendees should bring their laptops, with git installed and ready to use.
Attendees will find it beneficial to watch the microlearning series on git and GitHub. The tutorial is included for iCAS Forum registrants at no extra cost. It is also open to RPM registrants who are arriving early.
