What a whirl wind the past two years! We really cannot use the word normal anymore, instead, we have inserted into our daily vocabulary fluid, flexible, pivot, out of an abundance of caution… That being said, our chapter board met in January to try to plan out this year with the understanding life is unpredictable. Our goal is to bring value to our members and the risk management community through programming and social networking opportunities as our environment allows. Please reach out to anyone on the board with any suggestions for topics you would like to see or resources you may like to share with fellow members.
Even though we cannot go back to the normal we knew a few years ago, we would like to revisit some traditions from our past. RIMSail being one. We plan to have RIMSail return on a quarterly distribution.
Informational meetings, virtual for now, are scheduled for the 4th Thursday of the month, most months. I hope you had the opportunity to listen to Ryan Nell’s Employment Law Update in January, there was a lot of good information packed into an hour. Because labor law is ever evolving Ryan’s firm, Pettit Kohn, Ingrassia, Lutz and Dolin, have a great newsletter, Employment Update, you and/or your HR team would find value in. You can subscribe by going to www.pettitkohn.com.
In February, Rob Foster, from Rimkus, presented on digital intelligence, the future of forensics. Rob’s information made going off-line very compelling. If you were unable to listen to the presentation and are a member of the chapter, there is a recording you are welcome to request a copy of. Just send us a note through the chapter website at www.sandiegorims.org.
In March, we had a dynamic panel that discussed workers' compensation fraud. I hope your HR or claims department had access to this presentation. Keep up to date on future topics by accessing the chapter website. As a reminder, we are looking for ideas on the content for upcoming meetings.
