Welcome!

 

Saskatchewan, well known for its amazing sunsets and appropriately nicknamed "The Land of Living Skies", is home to this exciting chapter. SKRIMS is committed to creating networking opportunities and providing educational content for our members.

 

On behalf of the Saskatchewan Chapter of the Risk and Insurance Management Society (SKRIMS), I would like to welcome you to our organization. Membership in RIMS will provide many benefits to assist your work in risk management; some of the highlights of participating in our Chapter include:

 

Learning

Enhance your value to your company by developing your skills and knowledge by attending professional development sessions at our quarterly meetings. Recent presentations have included Business Continuity Planning, Kidnap and Detention, Emergency Response, IT Security Risks, Breach of Privacy, Risk Appetite, and Canadian Insurance Market Trends. From time to time, SKRIMS has also offered two-day courses as part of the RIMS Fellow designation program.

 

Resources

In addition to the great resources provided by RIMS, SKRIMS members also share their approaches to effectively manage risk within their organizations. We are also working to develop our website – http://saskatchewan.rims.org – as a resource centre and information portal for our members.

 

Connections

Perhaps the most valuable benefit to RIMS is the ability to share information and experiences with other risk professionals. Our Chapter has over 60 members from various public and private corporations and entities throughout Saskatchewan. Through participation in Chapter meetings, you can access – and contribute to – an invaluable source of risk management knowledge.

Chapter members and officers meet quarterly alternating between Regina and Saskatoon.

 

To enquire about our chapter or to find out how to attend one of our lunch and information sessions, please contact any of our officers.

 

Sincerely

 

Katherine Dawal

SKRIMS President
