President's Message

Manny Chavez
This past week was April 15th, a day we always remember. It's a time when you either owe the Man or better, He owes you! I can't believe we're already into the 2nd quarter of 2018.

This time of year normally brings good things for all of us. We spend the first part of the year getting over the prior year and planning for new things to put on our plates. I personally enjoy the longer days of sunshine. It gives me (personally) more outdoor time to do what I love... Cycling, gardening, beach, hiking, BBQ and spending time with the people who mean most.

From Spring to Summer, we've definitely got some things in store for all of our RIMS Family. Here's a quick view. Visit www.larims.org to register!

RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW... The Annual RIMS Conference is happening in San Antonio, TX this week! You only have about 10,000 people to meet! There's an incredible line up of educational seminars, speakers, exhibit hall and after hours events that brings the experience all together. It's truly a Conference built on collaboration. I hope you enjoy the experience.
