RIMS UTAH CHAPTER AWARD

RIMS UTAH CHAPTER SEES SIGNIFICANT MEMBERSHIP INCREASE

Increased Demand for Advanced Risk Management Capabilities Drives Practitioners to RIMS

NEW YORK (March X, 2016) — Just as organizations continue to lean on their risk management departments to achieve strategic objectives, risk professionals around the world continue to lean on RIMS for resources and networking opportunities to deliver value to their organizations. As a result of this trend, RIMS Utah Chapter experienced a 14 percent increase in membership in 2015.

“While the ability to connect with the world’s risk management community remains a top member benefit, the opportunities RIMS provides for members to interact and share ideas with their local peers has proven to be just as valuable,” said RIMS Chief Executive Officer Mary Roth. “It’s always rewarding to see that the Society’s resources continue to inspire. Congratulations to RIMS Utah Chapter for successfully delivering exceptional value to your local risk professional community.”

 

The Utah Chapter, based in Salt Lake City, will be recognized with the Society’s Membership Growth SuperStar Award at RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition in San Diego in April.

Other recipients of RIMS Membership SuperStar Award – an award that honors chapters that experienced membership growth of at least nine percent – include:

  • RIMS Quebec Chapter (Montreal, QB)
  • RIMS Silicon Valley Chapter (Silicon Valley, CA)
  • RIMS South Louisiana Chapter (New Orleans, LA)
  • RIMS Virginia Chapter (Williamsburg, VA)

RIMS Star Award recognizes chapters with growth of at least six percent but less than nine percent.  Chapters honored with this award included:
