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.

Wednesday, May 16th we'll host a Risk Manager Roundtable. This event is for Risk Managers only. It's an excellent opportunity to share and exchange ideas and issues in common. We look forward to your participation... Location details to follow.

Standard Club Thursday, May 24th our Rising Risk Professionals are hosting a Happy Hour at The Standard Roof Top Bar in downtown LA. This place is quite kool if you haven't been. Make sure you invite your new-young-rising stars to this event. We promise to have Sr. Risk Management attending for mentorship.

Thursday, August 16th LA RIMS Summer Mixer. The most fun-exciting event of the year! DON'T MISS IT! We're back at the Beach Club in Santa Monica for a great mixer that includes: food, cocktails, live music, dancing, fire pits, and plenty of interaction. The last few years we've had 300+ members attending. See you there!

There's something for everyone! Hope the days and weeks ahead bring you many successes at work and at home. Remember to take care of yourself personally... watch what you eat, engage in a sporting event and break a sweat. I promise the rewards will make a difference.
