A guest is defined as a spouse, significant other, family member or friend whose occupation is unrelated to the risk and insurance management profession. A co-worker or associate within the profession is not eligible for guest registration. Guest registration includes RIMS shuttle bus transportation between a RIMS hotel and the Henry B.

Guest registration does not include access to educational sessions, and thus guests are not eligible for continuing education credits, nor does the guest badge permit access to the RIMS 2018 Marketplace.

It is against RIMS policy to register someone in the guest category who does not meet with the aforementioned guest criteria.
