If you want to become a member of OCRIMS, we’d love to have you! Read below to see which category of membership best suits you, and join today by clicking the following link:
Organizational Membership—If you have risk responsibilities for a company/organization, then your company is eligible to become an Organizational Member of RIMS and you and a colleague (also an employee with risk responsibilities) can be your company’s individual members (we refer to you as a Professional Member). Both of your memberships are included in the annual dues. Please note that the membership belongs to the organization, not the individual.
Associate Membership—If you provide products or services to the risk management profession as a broker, underwriter, consultant, attorney, accountant, actuary or outsourced risk manager, then you are eligible for Associate membership in RIMS. Associates have all the privileges of membership except they are not eligible to serve as voting members of Boards or Committees at the Society or Chapter level. Your individual RIMS membership belongs to you, not to your company/employer.
Student Membership—If you are a fulltime undergraduate or graduate student working towards a degree in risk management, insurance or business—and if you aren’t eligible for a RIMS membership in any other category—then you can become a Student Member. (A copy of your current transcript is required in order to qualify for student membership.)
Educational Membership—If you are a fulltime professor or dean in a program providing risk management, insurance or business education, then you are eligible for Educational membership. (A current curriculum vitae is required in order to qualify for Educational membership.)
Retired Membership—If you are fully retired from the risk profession and were a Professional or Associate member of RIMS immediately prior to your full retirement, then you are eligible for Retired membership.
Transitional Membership—This category of membership is open to any Professional or Associate member upon separation from their current place of employment. Transitional Membership is renewable once, or a maximum of 2 years from the date of separation. Membership terminates upon acceptance of employment.
