Chapter holiday party December 12 at Flatstick Pub in Pioneer Square!

One of the most fun events we run each year is our chapter holiday party. This year we're satisfying that itch for a golf tournament despite the cold and rain outside.

Join your fellow Washington RIMS members at Flatstick Pub in Pioneer Square for a night of rotating local beers and ciders, a nine-hole miniature golf course, other games, food, and - of course - our annual charitable toy drive.

Drinks at this event are sponsored by Ashbaugh Beal, a client-focused law firm located in Seattle.

Thank you to all who joined us at the Swing for Kids golf tournament! 

RIMS Washington sponsored the first tee of the Swing for Kids golf tournament in August! The event benefited The First Tee of Greater Seattle and brought together professionals from around the insurance and risk management industry to relax and socialize for a great cause.
