Most chapters offer a variety of programming throughout the year, and some chapter meetings may feature a high-caliber speaker addressing "hot" industry topics. Most chapters participate in community service or fundraising activities, which afford members the opportunity to make a direct impact within their local community, raising the visibility of the risk management profession while providing opportunities to network with peers.
Another type of chapter meeting is an annual "I-Day"—a full day of educational sessions, networking and fundraising activities. RIMS South Texas Chapter hosts a Seminar Golf and Spa Day. Other chapters choose to take advantage of the Professional Exchange of Risk Knowledge (PERK) Program. RIMS Chapter Services Department and about 20 industry partners have teamed up to offer Chapters a selection of 60-90 minute program topics, available free to your chapter.
