As your assistant administrator for the Risk Management/ Industry Practice Specialty, my goals are to continue the ongoing great work as well as continue to strengthen our practice specialty. The risk management/insurance landscape is changing rapidly. I believe The RM/I Practice Specialty must continue to be at the forefront of this changing landscape to continue to meet our member’s needs.
A practice specialty is only as effective as what the members put into it. I will work with the Advisory Committee to build a consensus strategy to meet our member’s needs. One of my first goals would be to identify what you the members would like the practice specialty to provide. I also want to strengthen outreach to our members to identify what the membership’s needs are.
To support this goal, I foresee the development of a webinar series on topics relevant to our membership. I also see opportunities to provide our members with best practices and tools such as (but not limited to):
- Using data analytics to drive total cost of risk improvements
- Risk assessment tools (such as ISO 31000/ ISO 45001)
- Learning how to effectively utilize outside resources (carrier and broker risk control and claims, third-party TPAs, consultants)
- How the safety professional can effectively use RM/I tools to influence their corporate C-suite, human resources and risk management
We must also continue to be active on shaping the standards of our industry. I’ll continue to support our efforts to shaping the ISO 31000 and ISO 45001 standards.
I believe this practice specialty will continue to support our members and influence the safety profession. Thank you for your consideration for your vote.
