5 Strategies to Maximize Your Risk Assessments
While risk assessments enable organizations to understand their business issues and identify uncertainties, the best assessments go further.

President's Message

Manny Chavez
Sunday, June 25, 2017 1:45pm: I just left the gym, got in my car and the temperature read 109 degrees. Driving home I noticed a huge brush fire had started near Hwy 14 (Santa Clarita)...Ugh. I guess we can now say Summer has arrived! Don't get me wrong, I do love this time of year. It's a time for vacationing, enjoying the beach and nearby mountains, the days are long and the evenings are a great way to spend time with family and friends.

A few weeks back LA RIMS kicked off the summer with our annual Golf Tournament at Brookside Country Club in Pasadena. What fantastic day it was! Over 160 golfers took the greens to another level. Our Hole Sponsors were decorated fabulously and definitely turned a few heads.

AIG's hole had Sandy & Johnny from the movie "Grease," and yes that was Lisa wearing the black spandex singing "you better shape up...!" ATI, IMBER Court Reporters, The Hartford, AON, JLT and many others were in fine form. But, this year the music from FM Global certainly rocked the greens! If you happened to be karting by the FM hole, Desi Gamez and Lindsey Billet have a bit more to offer than their risk/insurance talents... those two can sing!!
