Nova Scotia Chapter Navigates the CRIMS '93 Conference


Kurland, Orin M., Risk Management


Back in 1983, it would have been hard for then-President Glendon R. George to imagine that the fledgling Nova Scotia Chapter would in just 10 years come to host Canada's premier risk management and insurance industry conference. "In the early 1980s, there were only a few independent RIMS members scattered about the Maritime provinces," recalls Mr. George (Dalhousie University), the chapter's very first president who currently serves as its society director. "But we wanted to see a chapter operating in Nova Scotia, not just in New Brunswick or Newfoundland," he says.

Hosting the 1993 Canadian RIMS Conference, which will be held September 15 to 18 in Halifax, can be looked upon as a "coming of age" for the decade-old chapter, whose ranks still number less than a dozen members. Despite the presence of three RIMS chapters in the Atlantic Provinces, a CRIMS Conference had yet to be held in the region, until now.

"Historically, the CRIMS Conference has been hosted by the larger chapters due to the enormous amount of work involved," notes Robert Patzelt (Scotia Investments Ltd.), president of the Nova Scotia Chapter and the conference chairperson. But when approached by the Canadian Chapters Committee (CCC) about being the host chapter, the Nova Scotia Chapter responded that it was up to the task. The CCC will be watching this conference closely, for if the conference in Halifax is a success, it could prove to be the springboard for other smaller chapters who may wish to take their respective turns as conference hosts.

Mr. Patzelt expects the conference to be a huge success, anticipating that registration will be as large, if not larger, than last year's event in Ottawa. Several factors were cited for giving rise to this expectation: Canada appears to be slowly emerging from a recession. so companies may permit their employees to take more business trips; people usually do not get the opportunity to travel to Halifax on business, so they will probably be eager to take advantage of this opportunity; registration for the conference's companion program is reportedly running high; and Ontario and Quebec, the two Canadian provinces with the largest number of risk managers, are both only a short airplane flight away.

This year's conference theme, "Navigating the '90s," was chosen back in 1989, Mr. Patzelt reports. He adds that the planning committee wanted, for obvious reasons, a theme that would play off Halifax's maritime tradition, as well as one that would be "representative of the decade of change" that risk managers will undoubtedly face. …
