Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Kathryn Hyland, ERMAC and RMC member, addresses the CIA breakfast.

At the recent Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Symposium in Washington, D.C., the CIA sponsored a breakfast for Canadians registered for the conference. About 30 actuaries and non-actuaries attended the event, which was aimed at helping Canadians establish relationships with other ERM practitioners and opening professional communication channels among participants.

In an effort to spend as much time on these two objectives, little space was left for lengthy speeches. CIA Executive Director Michel Simard hosted the formal part of the program. CIA President Jim Christie highlighted ERM’s increasing importance within the profession, while Jean-Yves Rioux, Chair of the Enterprise Risk Management Applications Committee (ERMAC), explained the committee’s role and projects it had undertaken.

Finally, Kathryn Hyland, a member of ERMAC and the Risk Management Committee (RMC), and the CIA’s representative with the Global Risk Institute in Financial Services (GRIFS), discussed the GRIF’s plans and work.
