 Register Here!


                                     Happy Middle of the Texas Summer Heat Wave! 

                                      I won't take much of your time this month, as you really probably want                                                                             to get back to fanning yourself to cool off!


                                      Just a couple of reminders about what's coming up once the weather                                                                               cools some!

Social Event

​​We have a social hour planned on Tuesday, September 13 in downtown Fort Worth at Bird Café from 5-7.  Look for details soon!

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 DFWRIMS.ORG.
