About the Chapter

The Vancouver 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.

A note from the Membership Chair

"We are a not-for-profit, member-driven professional association whose purpose is to advance the use of sound risk principles in the financial service industry. We promote

an enterprise approach to risk management that focuses on credit risk, market risk, and operational risk.

If you are an employee of a Financial Institution in one of these areas I encourage you to join as an Associate member. We also welcome Professional members who directly assist financial institutions in carrying out their risk-related missions (e.g. accountants, attorneys, etc)."
