2011 Hot Topics

Hot Topic Submission Deadline is January 7, 2010

The Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. invites dynamic speakers to share your expertise, gain visibility, enhance your professional growth and promote your organization.

Submit a Hot Topic session that presents the latest issues affecting the risk management industry. These stand-out sessions address of-the-moment topics that all risk managers face, the topics that can’t be learned on the job or in a classroom. Your submission should include strategies for attendees and may include interactive components, your personal experiences and case studies.

To be considered:

  1. Only proposals submitted through the online call for presentation website will be accepted for consideration. Proposals submitted in different formats will not be accepted.
  2. All submitters MUST review the updated Terms and Conditions prior to submitting their session.
  3. Sessions are all required to include a Risk Management individual on the panel.
  4. The following three items must be included in the PSF submission description field:
      • Topic:
      • Audience: (who will it appeal to; do they need any experience in a certain field?)
      • What will the attendee take home from the session: (i.e. a specific risk management tool, firsthand experience in a workshop atmosphere, a new approach or technique that can be adapted to their business.

Program suggestions may be submitted through Tuesday, January 18. Simply log on to www.RIMS.org/MyPresentations (the system will prompt you to enter your email address and password), and click on Create a New PSF to get started! Be sure to complete steps 1-3 before exiting the program. If you exit before step three, your submission will NOT be considered for the 2011 program.
