I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to serve as President of the Hispanic Insurance and Risk Management Association (HIRMA) for the year 2021. I would like to express my gratitude to the HIRMA Board for their trust in allowing me to be part of this magnificent organization. 2020 was a challenging year as we faced a worldwide pandemic. HIRMA was tested in our efforts to continue to carry our mission of providing educational and networking opportunities to the members of the risk management and insurance communities.
In 2020, despite the hurdles posed by a worldwide pandemic, we embraced technology and were able to continue to provide educational webinars covering topics relating to risk management, workers compensation, insurance risks, and safety practices. This new technology allowed us to reach a geographically broader audience and make new friends along the way.
We continue to welcome new ideas in our ongoing effort to provide timely and relevant educational sessions. We also strive to continue to present our industry leading networking events virtually or in-person when safe to do so.
We are very excited to be launching new initiatives in 2021 including a formal mentoring program that will provide resources to students in California State University, Fullerton’s School of Risk Management and Insurance. We hope you will consider getting involved in HIRMA in 2021. We look forward to seeing you at our educational and networking events in the coming year.
