MSHRM Risk Management Collaborative Meetings

Jan. 22, 2018

MSHRM “Risk Management Collaborative Meeting”

The very successful "Risk Management Collaborative" has been in existence in MA for nearly 30 years. 

What is the MSHRM Risk Management Collaborative?

The “Risk Management Collaborative” is a web meeting the first Friday of every month from 9AM-11AM EST. It brings together risk management professionals from different backgrounds and settings to discuss important industry developments at the state and national level, regulatory and accreditation standards and experiences and collaborate on “how you handle it” questions from participants. It’s an informal, but valuable opportunity to network and learn from each other. You don’t have to be an experienced Risk Manager to participate, in fact, we hope the meeting will serve as a mentoring opportunity as well.

Login information will be sent to all current MSHRM members 1 week prior to the meeting, but be sure to add this first Friday of the month meeting to your calendar. 

We hope members will join us and lend your expertise as well as come away with something that you maybe didn’t know! We welcome your feedback on the meeting as it evolves. Please send any agenda items, questions or issues for discussion to Denise Peterson at [email protected]


If you aren't already a MSHRM member you can join here for just $55.00 per year! Join
