Townhall: COVID-19 & Risk Management

Facilitator: Grant Feltz, OR RIMS President

As the world scrambles to cope with an ongoing pandemic, Risk is thrust into the fore. Oregon RIMS has had to severely alter our 2020 programming as a result of social distancing and the general uncertainty of the economy. Join us for a brief update on what our chapter is planning for the coming months and catch up with other risk professionals. This will be a time to come together as a community to discuss best practices, business continuity, financial impacts, worker safety issues, and all things COVID risk. We’d love to see your smiling faces in this extended absence from in-person meetings, so we’re holding the meeting on Zoom. If you’re unfamiliar, you can find instructions on how to use Zoom in the other attachment on this email.

“Bring” a young professional or Rising Risk Professional. Email us to let us know you and your guest are both attending, and you’ll be entered into a raffle!

Date: Thursday, April 16, 2020
Time: 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM

The Foundation provides grants of up to $7,500 to provide these experiential learning opportunities. Deadline is Thursday, January 9, 2020.
