BCRIMA's President's Letter

Dear Members and Board Committee Members,

Thank you for your continuing support to BCRIMA and RIMS.  I’m honoured to be the President of BCRIMA this upcoming year.  I have served on the Board in different roles for the past 8 years.  I’m so happy to see the Chapter grow and our Society keep acting as a voice in the industry.  I can also assure you that the Board has always tried to find new networking opportunities for our Members and stay abreast of new developments in the risk and insurance world in order to bring meaningful educational sessions to our Members and friends.

I want to thank the retiring Board and Committee members for their hard work and contributions in the past year.  I also want to welcome the returning and new Board, Committee members and friends of the Chapter. We are fortunate to have them as they have been volunteering their time and dedication to the Board.

We will be sending out the new program agenda at-a-glance to our Members in the summer.  I hope to see you at our upcoming meetings.  We welcome suggestions and feedback so that we can create a better engaging Chapter for our Members.  Please feel free to contact me anytime.

Sincerely,

Gloria Gao

President, BCRIMA
