About Us

The San Diego Chapter of the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. (RIMS) was founded in 1971, for the purpose of providing area risk management professionals with resources they can utilize to mitigate risks in their respective workplaces.

The success of the initial membership drive gave the chapter the impetus to expand its lineup of services, which in turn attracted more risk management specialists. Today, RIMS San Diego (or San Diego RIMS) boasts over 250 professional and associate members and is regarded throughout the national organization as an innovative chapter.

To ensure that our members always have access to the latest techniques and proven strategies, we feature a comprehensive range of programs, services and training focused on offsetting emerging risks, such as network and cyber security. These are delivered through guest speakers, seminars, webinars and newsletters.

A secondary goal of our organization is deliver a well-balanced experience for our members, which we accomplish through networking opportunities and special events, such as our yearly golf tournament and other social gatherings. We also strive to give to those in need through our charitable works, volunteering our time to assist the local food banks and contributing financial assistance to local charities and to the Spencer Educational Foundation, which provides risk management scholarships––among the many worthy causes we support.

As our members will attest, membership in RIMS San Diego (or San Diego RIMS) is a highly effective means of sharing new knowledge with fellow professionals, staying current with industry standards and getting involved in the community at large.
