RIMS


 

 

 

The RIMS  Political Action Committee is the only national political action committee representing risk managers nationwide before Congress. 

We are your voice, your strength, and your access to Members of Congress. 

When RISK PAC makes a contribution, it sends a strong, collective and clear message from risk managers to the beneficiary. As the PAC grows, that message resonates louder​!

If you wish to mail your contribution in please send it to the following address: 

RISKPAC
PO Box 95000-4790
Philadelphia, PA 19185​

RISK PAC 2016 Information ​

RISK PAC Mission

1. To educate congressional candidates and lawmakers about the practice of risk management and our unique concerns and interests; 

2. To provide financial su​pport to the campaigns of those congressional candidates who share our views or who are in a unique position to influence policy affecting the risk management profession.

2015 Legislative Successes 

In 2015 your past donations have assisted the RIMS Government Relations team with advocating for the successful passage of TRIA, the Policyholder Protection Act, and the Cyber Security Information Sharing Act.  

2016 Legislative Focus 

In 2016 we will be advocating for a single nationwide standard for security breach reporting, curbing frivolous ADA lawsuits, ensuring captives are not included in the NRRA,  flood insurance reauthorization, and against proposals such as a proposed reinsurance tax, that would greatly increase cost to many RIMS member organizations while reducing market capacity for coverage, to name a few.  

Why Contribute? 

It is critical that RIMS and RISK PAC, be involved in advocating on behalf of risk management professionals; however, RISK PAC can succeed only through the voluntary support of its members.​

By contributing to RISK PAC you are helping to ensure that we are able to reach those members of Congress most influential and supportive of our views on a wide range of topics affecting the profession. We also help to keep  those members who have supported RIMS in office. 

How Much Do I Donate? 

There is absolutely no minimum contribution. In fact, a small donation of even $50 will go a long way to helping us achieve our goals for the year. 

Just click the “make your contribution here” button at the top of this page and you’ll be taken directly to a secure site that will allow you to make your contribution with a credit card.

RISK PAC thanks you for your interest. If you have any questions, or would like more information, please email us at riskpac@rims.org.
