September 2016 - President's Message


                     What's shaking in your world?  Well, besides the earth around us?!  Labor day weekend                                                  and I awake Saturday morning to my house shaking and me in disbelief that an                                                                earthquake could be the cause.  I mean, we already have threats of tornados and                                                            hurricanes in Texas, surely we cannot be expected to take on earthquakes!                                                                      Luckily I've heard of no damage as a result, yet...

Speaking of... I'm excited for the fall and to see you all again at the monthly luncheons that resume again on Wednesday, September 28 with an ever topical discussion on Texas Weather and Its Impact by Steve Badger.

Throughout the summer the DFW RIMS board has been hard at work on your behalf coordinating educational seminars with RIMS for 2017, working on our partnership for DCEO Magazine for the Top Risk Manager award, securing interest in the new board for 2017 and oh, planning the best conference you'll attend all year!  We hope you'll find value in it all and feel free to reach out to any of us with any questions. We will be seeking committee members and volunteers for next year, soon.

Social Event

​​We have a social hour planned on Tuesday, September 13 in downtown Fort Worth at Bird Café from 5-7.  It's going to be a great turnout to get the "FW" of our "DFW RIMS" members engaged.  Look forward to seeing you there!​

Fall Conference

Our 2016 DFW RIMS Fall Conference this year will be a 2-day event, October 27-28th with the Conference starting Thursday afternoon and golf tournament/spa event Friday. The conference will include several dynamic speakers that will give our attendees the opportunity to discuss relevant and compelling topics that compliment this year's theme: "What's In Your Playbook."  Along those lines, we are excited to announce our Keynote Speaker...former Dallas Cowboy great, Chad Hennings.

This is sure to be a well-attended conference in that we're combining a favored location - Marriott Legacy in Plano - and a stupendous concentration of relevant topics for today's top Risk Management focus!  See the schedule below for details.  Please note the Conference start time at 1pm (with booth set up starting at 11am and remaining open through the Networking Happy Hour until 7:30pm).  The Golf Tournament is at a new location, Bear Creek Country Club in Dallas.  Our 2nd annual spa event will be located at the Gaylord Texan Relache Spa in Grapevine. 

 Check out the schedule, speakers and registration and sponsorship links at t DFWRIMS.ORG.
