Please check out the article on App State’s Brantley Risk & Insurance Center’s website that details our 2019 Shadow Day. We hosted 16 bright Appalachian State University Risk Management students in Charlotte on Friday, March 15.
Our speaker, John Beam, serves as Practice Leader for Willis Towers Watson’s Sports & Entertainment group on a North American basis. John manages over 100 high profile sports and entertainment clients, some of which include the College Football Playoff, Major League Baseball, the NCAA, Under Armour and Viacom. The Sports & Entertainment industry is driven by a combination of niche exposures that require certain expertise, risk management consultation and insurance solutions that extend beyond the standard norm. John plans to dive into to several niche lines of coverage that the audience will find helpful, but also entertaining.

We had another fun holiday social this year. The highlight of the event was the presentation of the scholarship awards to App State and UNC-Charlotte. Due to the generosity of our sponsors for the golf tournament and the annual conference, the Carolinas RIMS chapter presented checks for $15,000 to each university. Ben Reiter, Chapter Treasurer, presented checks to university representatives shown below.
When Dick Oelhafen, a great RIMS champion, passed away, we designated a scholarship in his honor. This $1,500 scholarship is awarded to an exemplary student with an interest in claims. Sarah Scott, a Senior Risk Management and Insurance student at UNC-Charlotte, was the recipient of this year’s scholarship. She possesses excellent analytical, project management, communication and leadership skills. Sarah is due to graduate in May 2019. Congratulations Sarah!
Our sincerest thanks for everyone that brought a coat to the event, making this a warmer winter for those in need. I am humbled by your contributions. The number of coats outweighed my expectations, so a sincere thank you! For those that missed the event, we had our first wine swap. We had great participation with 15 bottles of wine exchanged.
From the board, we wish all of you the very best this holiday season!
You are invited to attend the annual Holiday Social on December 3, 2018 in the Terrace Ballroom at the Charlotte Marriott SouthPark.
This is a great opportunity to network with your peers and support a worthy cause. This would also be a great opportunity to invite a Risk Management colleague who has not yet had the opportunity to join at a prior event.
In the spirit of the holidays, we will be collecting coats for those less fortunate. If you have a coat that you would like to donate, please bring it to the social.
What are the holidays without a good ole gift exchange? For those who would like to participate, bring a bottle of wine to be included in a gift exchange. You must be 21 years of age for this exchange.
The Carolinas RIMS Board hopes to see you on December 3rd to celebrate the holiday season.
Although this is a free event, we would like everyone to register if you plan on attending.
