New Group Reinforces RIMS Commitment to the Next Generation of Risk Leaders
NEW YORK (March 29, 2012) – RIMS (the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc.) has launched the Young Risk Practitioners (YRP) group to provide tomorrow’s risk and insurance industry leaders with essential tools to help them advance their careers and develop professionally.
The YRP (www.RIMS.org/YRP) group comprises RIMS members between the ages of 22 and 35 who are dedicated to advancing the risk management discipline and their careers. YRP members will receive direct access to valuable resources, including a dedicated portal to young risk practitioner services and information, an exclusive YRP eGroup, discounts to RIMS wide selection of Professional Development courses and an array of career tools.
“The men and women who choose to embark on a career in risk management will undoubtedly bring new ideas, identify new best practices and dramatically change the framework of the profession,” said RIMS President Deborah M. Luthi. “RIMS is proud to unveil this exceptional resource that we believe will play an integral role in advancing the careers of our young, aspiring members.”
The YRP group is part of RIMS effort to keep tomorrow’s industry leaders engaged and armed with valuable resources to help them achieve their professional goals. In 2009, RIMS unveiled the Student Advisory Council (SAC) that oversees and coordinates RIMS Student Outreach Programs and Membership. The SAC also maintains ongoing relationships with academic organizations that offer industry related courses and administers a RIMS Student Mentor program, connecting RIMS members and students.
