History

The Czech Society of Actuaries was established in 1992 to resume the activities of the Society of Czechoslovak Insurance Technicians. The original society was founded in 1919, and it ceased to exist after the Communist Party took over the power in 1948.

Since the very beginning, the Society closely co-operates with the Department of Financial and Insurance Mathematics of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Prague. The Society and the University jointly organise a regular Seminar in Actuarial Science (Czech: Seminář z aktuárských věd). University examinations are also a common way to gain full membership of the association.

The Society represents Czech actuaries within international actuarial community. In 1998, it became a full member of the International Actuarial Association, and after the country's accession to the European Union in 2004, the Society has become also a full member of the Groupe Consultatif.
