Casualty Actuaries in Reinsurance, or CARe, was founded in 1988 by a group of reinsurance actuaries who saw the need for a forum to discuss their common practical issues and to foster reinsurance research and education. CARe was later organized as a special interest section of the CAS.
CARe is guided by the Senior Actuaries Group, which is composed of chief actuaries active with reinsurance firms. The Senior Actuaries Group meets during each CARe meeting to advise the two CAS committees primarily involved in reinsurance practice. CARe also conducts its annual business session during this meeting and elects new officers at that time.
