 Organizational Membership*

Are you an employee of a company/organization for which you have risk responsibilities?

Your company is eligible to become an Organizational Member of RIMS and you and a colleague (also an employee with risk responsibilities) will be your company’s individual members (we refer to you as a Professional member). Both your memberships are included in the $575 annual Society dues*. The membership belongs to the organization, not the individual.

Associate Membership*

Do you provide products or services to those in the risk management profession? For instance, are you a broker, underwriter, consultant, attorney, accountant, actuary or outsourced risk manager?

You are eligible for Associate membership in RIMS. Associates have all the privileges of membership except they are not eligible to serve as voting members of Boards or Committees at the Society or Chapter level. Your individual Society member dues are $575 per year*; the membership belongs to you, not to your company/employer.

 Student Membership*
No Charge

Are you a full-time undergraduate or graduate student working towards a degree in risk management, insurance or business? 

If you are not eligible in any other category, you are eligible for Student membership in RIMS. Students receive FREE membership. While student members are responsible for local Chapter dues, many chapters have agreed to adopt the society's policy and waive dues. (A copy of your current transcript is required in order to qualify for student membership)

Educational Membership*

Are you a full-time professor or dean in a program providing risk management, insurance or business education?

You are eligible for Educational membership and your Society dues are $125 per year*.

(A current curriculum vitae is required in order to qualify for educational membership)

Retired Membership*

Are you fully retired from the risk profession? Were you a Professional or Associate member of RIMS immediately prior to your full retirement?

You are eligible for Retired membership and your Society dues are $125 per year*.

Transitional  Membership*
No Charge

Available to any Professional or Associate member upon separation from their current place of employment. Transitional Membership is renewable once, or a maximum of 2 years from the date of separation. Membership terminates upon acceptance of employment.


* All RIMS Members are required to join their local chapter and pay applicable dues. Details about benefits, fees and membership qualifications may be found at
