Matrix Group Launches Centennial Celebration & Annual Meeting Website for the Casualty Actuarial Society

January 15, 2014

Award-winning web design and development agency Matrix Group International is proud to announce the launch of the Centennial Celebration & Annual Meetingwebsite for the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS).

CAS, a professional organization based in Arlington, VA, supports its membership by establishing high standards of competency and conduct, advancing the body of knowledge in and promoting the awareness of actuarial science.

THE NEED

CAS wanted a beautiful and immersive website to showcase the Society’s history and achievements, encourage members to explore the CAS’ hundred years, and generate interest in attending the Centennial Celebration, which takes place in November 2014.

THE MATRIX SOLUTION

Such an important milestone required a separate site focused entirely on the anniversary and the meeting that will celebrate it. We teamed up to build a beautiful, dynamic site. Matrix also did the following:

  • Created a design that celebrates the Centennial Celebration and showcases the Society’s history that included an interactive timeline and responsive count-down widget.
  • Implemented the microsite in WordPress, a popular PHP-based content management system (CMS). An advantage of WordPress is the ease with which CAS’ staff members can dynamically update the pages, files and content of the site, keeping attendees, sponsors and exhibitors up-to-date on registration information, programs etc.
  • Built the microsite to responsive, which enables the website to respond dynamically to the smaller screen sizes of smartphones and tablets without losing the easy and comfortable user experience.
