RIMS 2010 kicked off in Boston this week with no signs of an economic slowdown. The Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc. (RIMS) is celebrating its 60th anniversary on the historic Boston waterfront with its annual conference being held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. RIMS includes greater than 10,000 risk managers from over 3,500 organizations ranging from Fortune 500 enterprises to government, nonprofit and service organizations.
The conference, now in its 19th year includes sessions on Enterprise Risk Management, Loss Control, Finance, Risk Management and Insurance among others. RIMS president Terry Fleming described the past 10 years as the most important in RIMS’ development, “risk management as a discipline has been thrust into center stage in the wake of catastrophe after catastrophe, including the global financial meltdown. The need for risk management has been highlighted more than ever before and RIMS has stepped up to the proverbial plate by testifying before congress, identifying new areas of interest in the discipline, creating inroads abroad and crafting the very definition of enterprise risk management.”
