Saskatchewan, "The Land of Living Skies", well known for its amazing sunrises and sunsets, is home to this exciting RIMS chapter. SKRIMS is committed to continuing to offer networking opportunities and provide educational content for our members.
It is hard to believe that we have been living with COVID and a variety of restrictions for almost 2 years now. In my message last year I talked about the new words added to our personal dictionaries - zooming, virtual team meetings, social distancing, masking, self-monitoring, self-isolation, COVID fatigue, and the most used phrase - you’re on mute. This last year has only increased our vocabulary and we’re all learning the Greek alphabet – one letter at a time.
In 2020 we successfully transitioned the way we deliver professional development to our membership with monthly virtual Lunch and Learns and virtual evening social events and we continued in 2021 with events every month (except August). We held 8 Lunch and Learns, 2 virtual social events (a mixology class where we created a special SKRIMS cocktail - "Stumble in Your Step", and holiday trivia where we learned a lot about Saskatchewan) a 2 day RIMS workshop, and the first in person event in two years – the SKRIMS Golf Day.
We are pleased to continue to provide an exciting line up of virtual monthly presentations this year and to continue to offer virtual evening networking events. 2022 will mark the 40th Anniversary of the SKRIMS Chapter and we are planning an in-person celebration in May in Regina to acknowledge the event.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to when we can get back to meeting in person.
Here’s to a great 2022.
