Dear NRRDA Members,
It’s hard to believe that 2022 is half way behind us and the view forward is still a little hazy. As I write this, virus variants continue to challenge us. As a risk manager, I am used to looking at historical events (loss runs, etc.) to understand how to prevent future accidents, illnesses, and injuries. When I don’t have history, my approach is to gather the smartest people I can to prepare for the unpredictable, and I think most have done the same.
This concept is a great lead into our Lighthouse Seminar, scheduled for November 7-8 in Westlake Village, California. We will focus on the impact of the labor challenges most of us are experiencing and how inexperienced labor in a high turnover environment impacts everything from injury rates to difficulties with witnesses and defense strategies. The ripple effect through restaurant and retail businesses is significant and the agenda we have created with the forward-thinking lineup of speakers demonstrates our commitment in providing timely and topical educational content for our membership. If you have not been in Southern California in November, it is spectacular and well worth the travel from wherever you might be coming from. Registration is OPEN, click here for all the details.
As we look toward 2023, our Annual Conference is on the horizon and planning is in progress. Charleston will be an amazing venue in March with so much to offer our group, including an incredible golf outing and service project. Rest assured, we are assembling an agenda of educational and networking that will, once again, demonstrate why NRRDA’s annual conference is the premier event of the year. I believe that our approach of designing content based upon what “keeps risk managers up at night” is why industry members return to this conference year after year. Our members are industry leaders drive results within their organizations and are excited to share their knowledge as a speaker or during our networking time. You simply cannot fully understand the power of what NRRDA creates from a webinar or podcast; the personal interaction is essential in thought leadership exchange and business development.

We have great momentum, there is so much that is still uncertain, but NRRDA has never been more relevant to all of our members and the networking is what makes us one of the strongest organizations in the country. I encourage you to engage with us, continue to drive leaders to our organization, and forward your ideas for continuing to make us a better organization.
