Please note that we will be waiving the $40 meeting fee for non-members to attend our virtual meetings. Non-members can create a free account on the RIMS website which allows them to RSVP to our virtual events. This year, we ask that you consider donating those funds to the Spencer Educational Foundation.  Risk Management and Insurance students will face a very difficult year, and your contribution will help Spencer to continue their work of supporting and developing the next generation of risk professionals.

To donate, please use the link and check the box labeled “I would like to dedicate this donation” box and dedicate your donation to DV RIMS.  Donation link: https://www.spencered.org/funding-their-future.  This approach allows your organization to deduct the donation for tax purposes while still acknowledging DV RIMS and our support for Spencer.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your continued support of the Chapter.
