President’s Message

Insurance and risk professionals: this is our time to shine! In times of calamity and uncertainty we have the opportunity to provide additional value to our companies and clients, to show our adaptability and ability to assess the environment and manage or exploit the risk.

As a chapter, it remains our objective to equip you with resources and tools to provide value. One critical way we do this is by providing opportunities for members to connect with other professionals in the field. This year, we place the same emphasis and value on events and meeting; however, they will look and feel slightly different as:

  • groups will be smaller,
  • meetings will be mixed with virtual and in-person participants,
  • rooms and tables will be larger to allow for greater spacing between persons, and
  • we will rely on name tags more than ever as face masks make it difficult to recognize our peers.

These adaptations allow us to continue to collaborate and socialize in a manner that prioritizes health and safety.

Another area of importance to address is diversity and inclusion- critical aspects of our industry that are an ever-expanding and evolving goal. Oregon RIMS shares the society’s vision and aim to provide a highly inclusive environment for all identity groups to thrive in the global risk community, and to facilitate and encourage open dialogue for a more inclusive and resilient future.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me or any member of the Oregon RIMS board. We look forward to connecting with you this year!

Keesa Garcia, President, Oregon RIMS
