BCRIMA President's Letter

Dear Members and Board Committee Members,

Once again I am pleased to serve our Chapter as President for the coming year.  For over 50 years BCRIMA has been an integral part of promoting Risk Management in both the private and public sectors of the Province by providing education and networking opportunities for our member 

With one of the largest memberships in the country, BCRIMA has a dedicated Board of Directors who share their enthusiasm and dedication to bring the best programs and conferences to our membership. 

We are here to serve you and look forward to meeting you at one of our luncheon sessions or social events. We extend the opportunity to all members to participate in various subcommittees, assisting our Directors with various functions and contributing ideas on how to add value for our membership while promoting the discipline in the Province. 

Feel free to contact any member of the Board with your enquiries or ideas on furthering Risk Management for our members. 

Thank you for your past support and for your future participation and interest in the coming year.



Vilma Zanchettin, FCIP, FRM
