RIMS ERM, November 18–19, Boston

Call for Sessions | RIMS ERM Conference 2024

Submission Deadline: Monday, May 13

Preparations for the RIMS ERM Conference are underway! This year, the event will be held November 18–19 in Boston, MA. RIMS wants to continue to present the best conference agenda by featuring the most engaged and knowledgeable risk professionals leading the discussions.

RIMS wants to hear from you.

The best submissions will address current and future issues facing Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) practitioners, as well as provide concrete takeaways for an audience of risk professionals, business leaders, students, governmental officers, legal professionals and more. Sessions delivered by experienced ERM professionals will be given preference.

Successful submissions are timely and relevant. For example, we know that ESG reporting guidelines and AI are creating new challenges and opportunities in the ERM space. Identify the risk, but delve deeper and address:

  • Why is it helping or hindering your job?
  • How are you leading your organization or department through these challenges?
  • How is your work or initiative retaining or generating value?
  • How is it tied to the larger, organizational strategy?
  • And how are you innovating along the way?
