The RMIA WA Chapter consists of deeply experienced professionals with expertise in risk, insurance and assurance across a range of industries and geographies. This makes the committee well positioned to partner with industry and other professional organisations and promote risk management as a source of strategic competitive advantage. In so doing, the WA Committee generates value for our members and partners.
One of RMIA WA’s principal mechanisms to influence the risk management conversation in the state are our events. Key Chapter-managed activities on our calendar include our nationally hosted risk management Odyssey and the Senior Risk Leader Roundtable. The Odyssey is a one-day conference designed to bring together industries and sectors and generate leading practice insights in relation to the event theme. Topics covered by the WA Odyssey in previous years include
- WA - State of Resilience (2015);
- Is risk management art, science or witchcraft? (2016);
- The Risk Function of the Future (2017 – Keynote Speaker was the Hon. Kim Beazley, current WA Governor)
- “Taming cybersecurity (2018)”.
We also host the invitation-only Senior Risk Leader Roundtable. This event is specifically aimed at senior risk professionals, risk function owners and business leaders. It is designed to showcase the strategic value of the risk management conversation but also to address some of the key challenges the profession faces in an organisational context. Our inaugural event was held in 2017 focused on Integration of risk management and strategy. In 2018 we focused on the Impact of the Royal Commission into Financial Services on the risk management profession.
We partner with industry organisations to deliver a raft of technical events throughout the year and in so doing maximise the value of the RMIA membership for our members. We also support individual “how to” queries from members on a range of topics related to risk management.
The Chapter is volunteer-based, values diversity and is inclusive in its approach to recruiting committee members.
We look forward to meeting you.
