President's Message


Manny Chavez
President
What a great weekend we just had! Saturday, October 21st, a bunch of us from the LA RIMS Chapter hiked 6.5 miles to the Hollywood Sign. It was a gorgeous invigorating day of exercise, sweat, laughter, meeting new peeps and accomplishment. We finished with a great lunch at Golden Road Brewing. I think we just might do something like this again.

This year is flying bye. Summer sorta just passed (it's still in the 90's) but I need to mention some of our sizzling events like the Summer Mixer! The Jonathan Beach Club has been the perfect venue. We had nearly 300 in attendance with fantastic weather, food, dancing, collaboration and live entertainment from the Mini Driver Band…Lead Singer and All Around Diva – Lindsay Billet (FM Global) rocked our socks off.

Your LA Chapter Board (Jeff, Scott, Vinny, Dennis, Maling, Richard, Taylor, Drue, Cristina, Jonathan, Ross, Adam, {Queen Amber} and myself) just finished our Strategic Planning Meeting for next year. We've got quite a lineup scheduled in 2018 that will promise to bring continued education, collaboration and plenty of fun that will personally offer you professional growth and opportunities, excitement and friendships that will last a lifetime. We're doing our best to keep you informed. Bookmark these sites on your computer or smartphone:
