I always look forward to the annual Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) conference. For me, it is a time to reconnect with our great clients, stakeholders and friends. It is also an exciting time to forge new partnerships, and of course hear some of the most insightful people in the industry speak at the many educational sessions.
This year, I am also looking forward to sharing our theme “The science of innovative solutions,” and all that it means for our clients and the industry at large. I invite you to get a head start and visit our RIMS website rims.sedgwick.com. We have a wealth of information already available for you to read and watch. You can also request a meeting with our colleagues who are joining me at the conference.
I want to announce another Sedgwick innovation that I believe will be a significant new resource for you. I am proud to introduce the edge, a quarterly publication dedicated to shining a light on our industry’s leading-edge topics that shape our collective future. Our thought leaders have written exceptional articles in this inaugural edition; I encourage you to read and share. Once again, Sedgwick is a catalyst for change.
Another exciting opportunity at RIMS is our sponsorship of the Spencer 5K Fun Run. You can still register and help support industry education. As a Spencer Educational Foundation board member, I can say firsthand that this is a great organization we should all support. This is the first year for the 5K Fun Run and I expect it to grow each year.
Finally, the learning opportunities at RIMS are always exceptional. Sedgwick has ten sessions planned with each providing a fusion of knowledge and expertise from our thought leaders and partners. Experience the energy of Sedgwick’s thought leadership by attending these sessions. To learn more, visit our educational sessions page at rims.sedgwick.com.
I also invite you to stop by Sedgwick’s booth (1621) or VeriClaim’s booth (1913) in the exhibit hall to spark a conversation during the conference. Explore our expert resources, innovative technology and powerful solutions. Find us on the exhibit hall map.
I look forward to seeing you at RIMS in New Orleans and wish you safe travels.
Dave North, President and CEO
