The Manitoba Chapter, like all RMA chapters, is organized and run by volunteer members. We strongly encourage current or prospective members to become involved in shaping the future direction of the chapter by contacting any of the current officers or committee chairs. We would also be happy to discuss the many benefits that can be derived from membership in RMA.

Credit Analysis Competition

The North Central Chapter of the Risk Management Association (RMA) recently held their 5th annual Credit Analysis Competition at the Dakota Medical Foundation’s Event Center in Fargo, ND. Nine teams participated in this year’s Competition. The teams were made up of college students with an interest in the financial institution industry and who are enrolled in finance or banking courses at their respective schools. 

Final results of the Competition saw the groups performing very well. In the end, the team from the University of Manitoba put together a solid performance that pushed them into a first-place finish, for the second year in a row! Congratulations!
