Member participation drives our professional activities and forums. While many of our members will earn an iCAS credential, others will encourage and support those pursuing an iCAS credential. Membership is recommended especially for those who are active in the practice communities established by iCAS.  You do not need to hold or pursue an iCAS credential to be a member.

Membership Dues and Credential Fee Schedule

Membership runs from October 1 -September 30.  Annual dues are $250.  Those who join April 1 – June 30 will be charged $125.

For those members who hold the CCRMP or CSCR designation, the Annual Credential Fee, which includes iCAS and ISCM dues, is $350. Those who earn the credential April 1 – June 30 will be charged $225.

Practice Communities

By joining The CAS Institute, you will be connected with other quantitative professionals in your specialty area who face similar challenges and opportunities.

When you become a member of iCAS you will automatically be enrolled in the iCAS Practice Community for Predictive Analytics and Data Science.  Additional practice communities will be added as iCAS expands into other fields with additional credentials for quantitative specialists.

For example, the International Society of Catastrophe Managers (ISCM) is managing the practice community for holders of our two credentials in Catastrophe Risk Management, the Certified Catastrophe Risk Management Professional (CCRMP) and the Certified Specialist in Catastrophe Risk (CSCR).

We are always looking for volunteers and suggestions to help develop our practice communities.  As an iCAS Member, you will be able to select any of the iCAS practice communities or to help start a new community. iCAS Members can belong to one or more of practice communities based on their areas of interest.

Who is Required to be a Member?

At the present time, membership is required for those seeking waivers available for certain Certified Specialist in Predictive Analytics (CSPA) credential requirements and for those who want to apply for the CSPA credential through our Experienced Practitioner Pathway.  Membership is also required for those who wish to take the CSPA exam on predictive modeling or to register for the CSPA case study project.  Those who receive an iCAS credential will need to maintain their membership in order to keep their credential.

Membership in both ISCM and iCAS is included in the $350 annual credential fee for one of the Catastrophe Risk Management credentials. The iCAS dues portion of the credential fee will be prorated according to the schedule above.

Ethics and Professionalism

All members, whether credential holders or not, agree to follow the Ethical Principles for Professionals found in the Professionalism section of the website.  Bi-annual continuing professional development (CPD) requirements apply to CSPA credential holders.
