President’s Message

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 restrictions for a year now.  We have had to make so many adjustments in our work and personal lives and it has been a challenge for everyone. We have added to our personal dictionaries with such words as zooming, virtual team meetings, social distancing, masking, self-monitoring, self-isolation, COVID fatigue, and the most used phrase - you’re on mute. We survived the great toilet paper shortage of 2020 – was that on anyone’s risk register? We have had to reimagine how we stay connected with family, friends and work colleagues and how to do business around the world without leaving our home.

For the past 39 years SKRIMS has held quarterly in person chapter meetings splitting the meetings between Saskatoon and Regina, with an occasional meeting held in Craik.  The meetings were typically ½ day with half the members driving 5 hours (round trip).

In 2020 we successfully transitioned the way we deliver professional development to our membership. We introduced monthly virtual Lunch and Learns where Chapter members can receive and participate in interactive presentations and round table discussions. We even held a virtual Holiday networking event that included a great evening of trivia and many laughs. Despite the challenges facing us we have been able to increase the participation level in these activities.

We are pleased to continue to provide an exciting line up of monthly presentations this year and to offer regular evening networking events. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to when we can meet in person, as well.

Here’s to a great 2021.

Katherine Dawal

SKRIMS President
