A message from our president:

Dear NJ RIMS Community,

I am excited to share with you that, effective January 1st , Kenrich Bergmann will be assuming the role of NJ RIMS chapter President and Jason Bopp will be Vice President for the 2022 / 2023 term. We are so fortunate that Ken and Jason have agreed to take on these responsibilities. I know it will not come as a surprise to any of you that the NJ RIMS vote by the board was unanimous for Ken and Jason. I am confident that the entire NJ RIMS community will join me in thanking and congratulating Ken and Jason on their appointments.

As this will be my last message as chapter president, I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to the NJ RIMS community and particularly to the phenomenal NJ RIMS board of directors.

I am so proud of what the NJ RIMS board accomplished over that past two years. Despite challenges on all fronts, this board remained cohesive, committed, and supportive throughout. We did our best to bring the community together through virtual sessions of topical interest or professional development. When I took the responsibility of chapter president in 2020, I could not have envisioned that we would be seeking out a speaker on effective zoom presentation skills. But that is where we found ourselves as we rose to the meet the challenges of keeping the chapter relevant in the midst of a pandemic. Notably, we were also successful in meeting our charitable commitments, we extended our student outreach and we still managed to network with other chapters.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire NJ RIMS community. You dialed in to our sessions. You contributed speakers, questions and new ideas. You supported our 2021 golf outing. Your engagement with NJ RIMS is what makes the effort worthwhile, and we appreciate it.

It has been a privilege serving as your 2020 / 2021 Chapter President.
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Laurie Erickson
New Jersey RIMS Chapter President (2020 / 2021)
