March Luncheon

Broker relationships are often complicated, and for any number of reasons it becomes necessary to undergo a broker selection process, and as part of that process a request for proposal (“RFP”).  Last year Layne Ashton developed and managed an RFP at Lamb Weston, the results of which included a Y-o-Y savings $>700k over the expiring insurance program.  Layne will share, from start to finish, the process Lamb Weston went through in selecting a new broker, including the participation of five brokerages.

Layne Ashton has a cumulative total of 16 years’ experience in loss control, risk management and commercial insurance.  Layne was most recently Director of Insurance & Risk Management at Lamb Weston, Inc., a U.S.-based French fry manufacturer with the largest market share in North America, and #2 market share world-wide.  At Lamb Weston, Layne oversaw a staff responsible for managing insurance renewals, claims and broker relationships as well as a 17-plant loss control survey and inspection program, business continuity planning, and crisis management planning.  Immediately before Lamb Weston, Layne held the Risk Manager position at EnergySolutions.  Layne holds two Bachelor’s Degrees from the University of Utah, and a Master’s Degree from Georgetown University.

Date & Time:  Thursday, March 14, 2019 - 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Place:  Little America Hotel

NOTE:  This meeting is also the Chapter's Annual Member Meeting.

RIMS UTAH CHAPTER SEES SIGNIFICANT MEMBERSHIP INCREASE

Increased Demand for Advanced Risk Management Capabilities Drives Practitioners to RIMS

NEW YORK (March X, 2016) — Just as organizations continue to lean on their risk management departments to achieve strategic objectives, risk professionals around the world continue to lean on RIMS for resources and networking opportunities to deliver value to their organizations. As a result of this trend, RIMS Utah Chapter experienced a 14 percent increase in membership in 2015.

“While the ability to connect with the world’s risk management community remains a top member benefit, the opportunities RIMS provides for members to interact and share ideas with their local peers has proven to be just as valuable,” said RIMS Chief Executive Officer Mary Roth. “It’s always rewarding to see that the Society’s resources continue to inspire. Congratulations to RIMS Utah Chapter for successfully delivering exceptional value to your local risk professional community.”

 

The Utah Chapter, based in Salt Lake City, will be recognized with the Society’s Membership Growth SuperStar Award at RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition in San Diego in April.
