Announcements

  • RIMS ANNOUNCES FULL-VACCINATION REQUIREMENT AT ALL SOCIETY EVENTS

    RIMS has implemented new guidelines that will require anyone who wishes to attend a RIMS in-person event to show that they are fully-vaccinated for COVID-19.  The requirement is effective immediately for all events managed by RIMS staff, including the upcoming RIMS Enterprise Risk Management Conference and its Annual Conference & Exhibition scheduled for April 10-13 in San Francisco.

     

    RIMS will adhere to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) definition of “fully vaccinated.” According to the CDC, people are considered fully vaccinated:

    ·       Two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or

    ·       Two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

    ·       If the individual does not meet these requirements, regardless of age, they are NOT fully vaccinated.

     

    The vaccine requirement also applies to RIMS staff, vendors, sponsors, media, and other ancillary partners who plan to attend or provide a service at a RIMS event. While the Society will make no exceptions for religious or health exemptions, it will work with those impacted to develop an alternative virtual event experience. The Society is currently exploring third-party vendors that specialize in conducting health screenings, as well as validating the authenticity of vaccine documentation.

     

    “RIMS events are world-renowned and have set the highest standard for delivering the best in risk management knowledge, solutions and opportunities,” said RIMS President Ellen Dunkin.  “Under these current conditions and after a thorough review of event industry trends, our Board felt it was necessary to adopt these vaccination requirements. At the end of the day, it’s about the safety of our attendees and, as risk professionals, we believe this decision is the best option for RIMS to, once again, bring the world’s risk management community together.”

     

    RIMS Board of Directors and staff will continue to monitor the COVID-19 global pandemic and its impact on both domestic and international populations. Its leadership reserves the right to amend this vaccination policy accordingly. For questions about RIMS vaccination policy and/or eligibility to attend a RIMS event, email CST@RIMS.org.
