Volunteers to build and stock bookshelves as part of RIMS’ fourth annual Community Service Day.

NEW YORK (April 22, 2010) — Over 100 attendees and exhibitors at the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) 2010 Annual Conference & Exhibition will gather on Sunday, April 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center to build and stock bookshelves that will be donated to two local Boston organizations.
“Establishing solid literacy skills early in life is critical to personal success and RIMS is pleased to have the opportunity to provide children with better access to books and reading materials,” says Terry Fleming, RIMS president and director, division of risk management for Montgomery County, Maryland. “We thank all conference attendees and exhibitors who will take part in this important event. We also extend a special thanks to Aon, a generous supporter of RIMS Community Service Day.”

RIMS 2010 attendees and their guests are invited to take part in this event. Those unable to participate can do their part to encourage literacy and share the magic of reading by donating a children’s book. RIMS will be collecting books from Sunday, April 25 to Tuesday, April 27 near the Bookstore located at the BCEC Level 1; NE Lobby A. Books will also be collected at the Aon booth #1501.

"Aon is committed to not only helping businesses manage their risks on a daily basis, but fostering innovative and fact-based ideas to help clients grow," says Doug Turk, executive vice president at Aon Corporation. "Aon colleagues are united in our efforts to serve the local communities in which we work, including Boston, and we applaud these to provide children with the tools they need to spark ideas and succeed."
