Join us at the Pacific Northwest Enterprise Risk Forum on November 8! 

The Pacific Northwest Enterprise Risk Forum (ERF) is a one-day summit tailored to the needs of audit, finance, and risk professionals. This year’s event will have a strong focus on governance, risk, compliance and ethics with the overall goal of elevating the conversation and practice of GRCE principles within our organizations and communities.
 
Organizations understand that risk is not just managed through a single function, but is managed through a combination of ideas and resources, by sharing information, and by taking a global view of issues. The forum is positioned to create a collaborative approach and is uniquely designed to provide thought provoking learning sessions, networking opportunities, and roundtable discussions. Attendees will gain insights and perspectives on how collaboration and information play in the organization, as well as practical recommendations for improving their organization’s governance, risk and compliance processes. Presenters will discuss leading edge techniques to identify risks and approaches used to successfully manage risk in today’s corporate environment. The goal is to ensure everyone leaves the Pacific Northwest Enterprise Risk Forum better prepared to address risk in their organization and everyday life.
