We believe that the financial marketplace in Switzerland does and will make a significant contribution to best practices in international risk management. We provide an open forum for risk management.
Our Mission is to strengthen Switzerland’s standing as a center of expertise in risk management. The Swiss Risk Association aims to enforce the network and enable an exchange among risk experts:
- Creating a networking platform
- Sharing knowledge and information about risk
- Organizing Events
Board of Directors (BoD)
The Board of Directors (BoD) is responsible for the strategy and represents the association externally. The Board members determine the yearly budget and the membership fees. They handle appeals of membership revocation and membership requests. Most of the Board Members also chair a risk chapter.
Executive Committee (ExCo)
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 Chapter Teams manage content and agenda of the chapter events. Each chapter team plans 2-3 yearly chapter meetings, accessibe for members only.
