President's Message

Manny Chavez
It's January 1st, 2017 and I'm sitting by the fire at my home looking at our beautiful Christmas tree thinking about how blessed I am. Thoughts about how we pursue our dreams early in life, meeting many people along the way, making personal sacrifices and finding that special place we call work is more than inspirational. My particular path has been extremely exciting throughout my career (which I can share separately), but I would have to say that being involved with RIMS for over 20 years has enlightened me more than anything else professionally.

I am very excited to serve as the new President of the LA Chapter of RIMS. Our Board of Directors (volunteers) and past Presidents who have guided this Chapter for many years have brought so many opportunities for the membership. I love everything we do e.g. Luncheons, Risk Manager Forums, Events - Golf Tournament, Mixers, Holiday Party, Education Day and especially something new we're starting in 2017 called Rising Risk Professionals.
