December 04, 2014

New Education Offerings and Networking Opportunities Cater to Professionals at All Levels

 

NEW YORK (December 4, 2014) — RIMS has announced that registration is now open for RIMS 2015 Annual Conference & Exhibition (www.RIMS.org/RIMS15).  The conference and exhibition is widely considered the premier risk management industry event and has received accolades for offering thought-provoking educational sessions and invaluable networking opportunities. The four-day conference is scheduled for April 26th – 29th in New Orleans at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

 

“Building and sustaining a risk management program that can address both known and unknown risks has become increasingly more challenging,” said RIMS Executive Director Mary Roth.  “RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition is a vital resource for risk professionals to enhance their programs’ versatility through new knowledge, new encounters and new innovations. We’re looking forward to welcoming the global risk management community to New Orleans.”
