Membership Categories

Organizational Member*

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 US $600 annual Society dues*. The membership belongs to the organization, not the individual.
Organizational 3rd Member Discount
If a member organization registers and pays for two dues-paying professional members for Full Conference passes, any subsequent dues-paying professional members may register at a discounted rate. (Refer to rates on the Registration Fees page.) Registrations must be paid in full before the discount can be applied. Note: RIMS policy on deputy substitutions has changed. View the policy.

Associate Member*

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 US $575 per year*; the membership belongs to you, not to your company/employer.

Student Member*

Are you a full-time undergraduate or graduate student working towards a degree in risk management, insurance or business? A Student membership may be granted to a full-time student, as defined by the student’s college or university. The student’s major must be in risk management, insurance or business, finance or management with an emphasis in risk management and/or insurance provided such individual is not otherwise eligible for membership in another class.
(A copy of your current transcript is required in order to qualify for student membership)

Educational Member*

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 US $125 per year*. (A current curriculum vitae is required in order to qualify for educational 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 US $125 per year*.
This membership option is available at no charge to any Professional or Associate member upon separation from their current place of employment. Transitional membership is renewable once, or a maximum of two years from the date of separation. Membership terminates upon acceptance of employment. 

*All RIMS members are required to belong to a local chapter and pay any applicable chapter dues.
