To our chapter Members and Friends,
As those who work within the risk management community, we are all well aware of the seriousness of the situation related to COVID-19 and the daily changes in local restrictions, recommendations for social distancing, and thoughts regarding gatherings of people in large groups. As the leadership of the Broward County chapter, we wish to react appropriately and not make hasty decisions related to chapter activities.
After careful consideration, we have postponed our April special offsite event until October 21st.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, particularly with respect to public health and our future programming. We will make decisions and post updates on chapter activities as circumstances evolve and information becomes available.
Additional resources related to COVID-19 may be found at the RIMS website, the Florida Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):
We encourage all of our membership and friends to be proactive in following the common sense advice to prevent illness and avoid exposure to the virus, and guidance provided by the CDC and the Florida Department of Health. A sample poster is attached that includes the most common advice.
While we take the situation seriously, we remain calm and focused on our role in Risk Management. Keep our April 15th event on your calendar, and we'll update you as quickly as possible via email and on our website. Just a reminder that all of our upcoming events are found on our website under the Meetings/Events link.
Stay safe and healthy!
The Officers and Directors of the Broward County Chapter of RIMS
