Upcoming Chapter Meetings & Job Opportunities


    Hello Chapter Members,

    The Annual Chicagoland Risk Forum is scheduled for November 12 -13, 2018 at the Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile Hotel in Chicago.  The hosting RIMS Chapters strive to advance the practice of risk management for both students and risk professionals. This conference is a great example of how we put goals into action.  

    A select group of university students interested in insurance and risk management careers will be joining us at the conference.  We are looking for 30 volunteers to serve as mentors to the students during the conference.  Once mentors and students are paired, we will distribute guidelines to help both mentors and students understand their roles throughout the conference. There will also be a Student/Mentor Introductory Session prior to the official kickoff of the conference on the first day. This session will be the meeting place for mentors and students. We will also provide some tips for making the most of the conference and the student/mentor relationship.  

    Please let us know if you are interested in being a mentor by sending an email to mdivarco@comcast.net and someone will reach out to you if you are selected.

    We appreciate your support to encourage college students to enter the insurance and risk management field.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

    See you at the Conference!
