Please join MARIMS for our next Virtual December lunch meeting:

time: 12:00 Noon - Brief self introductions
Presentation for 30 minutes
Questions/ Feedback/ Comments 15-30 minutes
No Charge for this event.   

With our move to Virtual meetings, there has been little time to bath in the collegial chatter that we had become so used to, and dare we say that all of us had taken for granted, as we broke bread together over at Bergmann’s each month…. how so many of us now yearn for a return to those simpler in-person times together.

Minus the “hosted” wine, the December meeting will follow our usual tradition of a lite meeting where we will go around the attendees to ask you for your personal comments on the past year.

3Fnr7gF4QbaFi50oxEE6_temp-T.jpgPlease feel free to share your personal and professional stories about how COVID has affected you, your workplace, and the ones you love; and, how you have “dealt” with those changes and challenges…. 

Each attendee will be asked to share their comments and also one “clean” joke or riddle as part of their speaking time.

The Executive will also provide the year end global Darwin Awards to help lighten this meeting up a bit…

Let’s share our stories of challenges and of our successes from the past year and some laughs as we look forward to, and embrace with optimism, 2021, the year of the vaccine…..

Thank you,
MaRIMS Executive

Returning to Aon and to Winnipeg in 2018, he works closely with the National team to consult with the public sector including Indigenous communities to assess, mitigate and transfer risk to remove volatility from the public entity's balance sheets.
