NEW YORK (April 16, 2021) RIMS, the risk management society®, presented the Chapter of the Year Award to its Orange County Chapter (Tustin, California) for delivering exceptional resources, programming and opportunities to local members in 2020. The Chapter of the Year honor is part of RIMS ECHO Awards Program that will also recognize three other exemplary chapters during RIMS LIVE 2021.

 The 2021 RIMS chapter recipients are: 

  • Chapter of the Year:  RIMS Orange County Chapter
  • ECHO Award Winner: RIMS Atlanta Chapter
  • ECHO Award Winner: RIMS Nevada Chapter
  • ECHO Award Winner: RIMS Oregon Chapter

The ECHO Awards Program – Enhancing CHapter Outcomes – honors chapters that have successfully aligned their programming with RIMS’ strategic priorities to innovate, develop, engage and advocate for the global risk management community.

“The digital transformation might have seemed daunting to some, but not for RIMS chapter leaders,” said Ellen Dunkin, RIMS 2021 President. “Through 2020’s most difficult days and limited to only virtual connections with members, RIMS chapter volunteers were resilient. They embraced change, were innovative and steadfast in their commitment to create an inclusive and supportive professional community. Congratulations to the Orange County Chapter and our ECHO Award winners for their outstanding leadership.”

The awards will be presented during the Awards and Leadership Keynote program during RIMS LIVE 2021 on April 26, 2021. For details about other RIMS 2021 awards, visit www.RIMS.org/awards or the conference website at www.RIMS.org/RIMS2021.
