Message From Conference Co-Chairs


As you know, we are quickly approaching our Annual Conference and we are very excited about the new, virtual platform we will be utilizing this year.  However, in order to make this conference a success, it is vitally important that ALL committee members pitch in and volunteer to assist in facilitating and navigating members through the virtual platform.  As you know, Thursday evening is traditionally reserved for our large networking reception where sponsors and members can interact in a fun, more laid back environment while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.  This year, we are getting creative with the networking reception by offering members the opportunity to interact with other members inside our “virtual bar.”  The Virtual Bar will feature 4 different Zoom capability virtual chat rooms divided out by topic where individuals can interact and network with other attendees of the conference.  We will encourage members to grab a cup of coffee, a cocktail, and/or a snack and join in for some lively discussion with other attendees of the conference.  To encourage participation in our virtual networking reception, we will be offering a $20 gift card at three different times throughout the 2-hour reception window which will be awarded to members based upon participation in the chats (i.e. a pop up quiz question about a particular session from the conference – the first member to chime in with the correct answer wins the gift card).

In order to make our networking reception a success, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are asking members of the committee to volunteer to moderate the chat rooms to encourage participation and keep the environment lively and interactive.  Without moderators, we are concerned there may be minimal participation.  If you have not already registered for the conference (and MANY of our Committee members have not), please do so IMMEDIATELY so that we have an accurate count of those who will be in attendance.  If you will not be attending the conference, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can plan accordingly.

We are very excited about this year’s conference and appreciate all of the hard work you have put in, but we aren’t finished yet.  Thank you for volunteering your time, and with your help we can make this year’s conference a great success.  If you have any other thoughts or input about the networking reception, please let us know.  Please see proposed structure for our Thursday evening reception.

We look forward to your comments.

    Looks like a great format! I'm happy to assist as a moderator where needed. Looking forward to the next conference call to get a better grasp on the expectations and more details about the recommended topics for each of the 4 chat rooms.

    Kimberly & Chanel thank you. Your hard work has painted a beautiful canvas. I'm connecting to the vision and would like to help in any form. The moderating is key and I'm on board to volunteer. Few questions?? I'm developing and will send as they are clear. The first is how many moderators peer room and what do you envision based on the topics. Secondly, what will be formal format of the networking reception. Will this be inline with sharing personal interest and what's new in that person (risk manager) current role?
