Kick off Summer right with RIMS Washington on June 14!

Summer usually marks a lull in our monthly speaker series, so this is when we take a moment to unwind, appreciate the weather, and have some fun. For this event we've reserved the deck of Eastlake Bar & Grill over looking Lake Union! We'll have appetizers, drinks, and plenty of networking and socializing!

We're also making a special effort to include rising risk professionals in this event and recognize our past presidents who have contributed their expertise to our chapter's success. If you've ever wanted a chance to sit down in a relaxed setting and prepare for your future with the advice of a seasoned veteran of the industry, there's no better opportunity (and if you're a rising risk professional, this event is free of charge!).

We'll also use this time to complete the administrative task of electing new officers to the Board - if you received a ballot in your inbox, please make sure to return it!

Register here.

THANK YOU to all our presenters, colleagues, and sponsors who joined us on March 21!
Each of you helped make this event engaging, informative, and successful.
