RIMS Legislative Summit 2014

RIMS is going to Capitol Hill and we want you to come with us. Join us and lobby for the interests of risk management—your interests.

This is your chance to not only see what goes on in Washington, but to actively participate in your government. We’ll have experts to walk you through the lobbying process and instruct you on how to present your issues. Then you’ll take your new skills to Capitol Hill.

The number one priority this year is a long-term extension of TRIA, the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act. For several years TRIA has served as the backstop that has allowed for sufficient terrorism insurance capacity that you can afford. If Congress allows TRIA to expire at the end of 2014, commercial consumers may find that they are no longer able to procure sufficient coverage, thus placing lending agreements in jeopardy and companies at risk. This is your opportunity to explain the commercial consumer’s need for a TRIA extension directly to members of Congress and their staffs.

Make a difference. Register for RIMS Legislative Summit and make your voice heard.

"Attending this event has become one of my favorite Society events. Not only do you have the opportunity to meet fellow risk managers and RIMS members, it is a real life civics lesson on how the Federal government works. Being able to better understand the Society’s legislative platforms and having the opportunity to explain to members of Congress why these issue are important to the Society and the risk management community becomes a very tangible value of membership and advocacy. If you have an interest in these topics, I highly recommend attending. It will provide a different perspective of how the democratic process works."

"On my last visit, I met with a member of the House leadership.  As it turns out, we had a common acquaintance.  The Congressman was a regular guy and understood our issues.  He already was backing one piece of legislation and agreed to sign onto another of RIMS' supported legislation."
