RIMS Community Service Day Inspires Global Risk Professionals to Give Back to Los Angeles Charity 4/15/2013


Participants to Assemble Classroom Furnishings & Decorations for Child Care Resource Center

NEW YORK (April 15, 2013) — On April 21st, more than 100 risk and insurance professionals are expected to gather for RIMS Community Service Day to assemble puppet stages and classroom story boards for the Child Care Resource Center (CCRC).  The Zurich sponsored event kicks off RIMS 2013 Annual Conference & Exhibition, the industry’s premier educational and networking event, scheduled for April 21st through 24th.

Since 1976, CCRC has provided critical educational programs, family resources and training and technical assistance to a network of more than 25,000 children and families each month.  The charitable organization, funded primarily through state and federal grants, has more than 20 facilities throughout Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties that work with parents, child care professionals, community members, businesses and government agencies to promote higher standards in child care and early education.

“It’s wonderful to see the risk management community refocus their energy and demonstrate such an enormous level of commitment and compassion for those less fortunate,” said Deborah M. Luthi, immediate past president of RIMS. “RIMS Community Service Day has become an important part of our Annual Conference and I would like to thank Zurich for their continued support and all the men and women who help make this event a success.”

“We are a proud sponsor of the RIMS Community Service Day, as giving back to the communities we live and work in is something that is important to Zurich and its employees,” said Dan Riordan, CEO of Zurich Global Corporate in North America. “We think CCRC is a great charity and cause to work with, and we hope it is a successful event.”

RIMS Community Service Day is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Conference attendees interested in participating are asked to register the day-of at the Los Angeles Convention Center room 502.  For more information about RIMS Community Service Day and the RIMS 2013 Annual Conference & Exhibition, visit
