HOW ARE WE ORGANIZED

The Board of Directors (BoD) meets twice per year to decide on strategic directions of the association. The Board members review and approve the financials of the past year and the budget of the following year. Some Board members are chairing the Risk chapters.

The Executive Committee (ExCo) meets once a month to decide on key operational topics: new sponsors, interfaces for sponsors, keynote speakers for Flagship events and Swiss Risk Dinners. They also approve the event calendar proposed by the CEO.

The Chairs of the Risk Chapters are responsible for the content and agenda of the Chapter events. All Chapters are chaired by a Board memberadvised by a Sponsor representative and operatively supported by a chapter manager. We plan to offer yearly 3 Chapter events.

The Office of the Secretary (Secretariat) handles the daily operations of the association: event organization, member and ticketing support, management of webpage and social platforms, marketing, sponsoring and accounting. The office is led by the CEO.

 
 
Independence: All individuals who have a role in our organization, e.g.as BoD member, ExCo member or as Chapter lead, act as personal individuals and not as representative of their employer.
