"I am a member of RIMS for several key reasons. To gain access to the educational and networking opportunities offered year round, and to collaborate with and learn from members, given their insight and understanding of risk management. I am also a proud volunteer for my chapter, and know that my voice and experiences adds to the local community and helps provide a platform for other risk professionals to engage and stay informed"
