Greetings Oregon RIMS Members and friends of the Chapter! Many of us have realized the benefits of working from home over the last few years, such as additional time from cutting the commute, a more relaxed dress code and environment, and being close to our furry friends and family throughout the day. However, there are also areas which require much more effort as we work from home, such as networking, professional development, and connection. As a Chapter, we have seen a steady decline in volunteers and involvement compared to our in-person days. We are looking for leaders in the community and asking for you to support the Chapter by getting involved.

What a time to be alive. Could anyone imagine the challenges and opportunities that would come our way in 2020 and now in 2021? With this ever-changing landscape, we are taking a step back this year to focus on the chapter’s core strength: it’s people. The following chapter goals for 2021 center around this core strength: Create opportunities for meaningful connection for members and the broader risk management community. Equip risk and insurance professionals to succeed in an evolving environment. Promote diversity, equity and inclusion by building relevant engagement and education into the regular operation of the chapter. Ensure a resilient and adaptable organizational structure. In the coming months, there are several opportunities for engagement and personal development for our members and friends of the chapter. We hope you will join us virtually at RIMS Live 2021 from April 19th – 30th where, between the education, marketplace and networking, Oregon RIMS will receive an ECHO Award in recognition of its exceptional strategic planning and achievement of goals. See Page 4 of the newsletter for the list of additional upcoming events, and be sure to save the date for the Annual Education Day on June 17th. Keep an eye out for [...]
