"The RIMS Legislative Conference was one of the most rewarding experiences that I have had in my professional career.  The ability to speak to the offices of our member representatives on issues that affect our day-to-day business operations and discuss how current legislation could impact us was incredible.  The staff at RIMS prepared us for the meetings in advance so that our time was meaningful and impactful to each of the members of the House and the Senate.  Being a part of the process is an experience I would recommend to all members of RIMS and I will hope to participate for many years to come!"

“The Legislative Summit it is a great way for YRPs to be actively involved in the political process as it affects the risk management and insurance industry. The summit addressed key topics and the impact of current legislation. Going to Capitol Hill to meet members of the House and the Senate and discuss our concerns was an invaluable experience.  I will be attending again this year and highly recommend other YRPs to join.”
