Institutional Membership

Our purpose is to help highly successful professionals make better risk management decisions. Through our chapter meetings, conferences and round tables, we provide unique opportunities to hear the industry’s top risk managers. Our publications and information services will keep members current with the industry’s best practices. Furthermore, RMA offers substantial member discounts on all its products and services.

Associates will receive The RMA Journal® 10 times a year with updates on the latest RMA risk management tools and research. The online Journal is available 24/7 and offers free downloads of articles and study packs. At the local level, Associates will have full access and invitations to local chapter events. Included with your institution's membership is a set of RMA’s Annual Statement Studies® books. Plus, throughout the year, Associates will receive special reports/hot topics of interest, which may also be accessed through RMA's Members Only areas of the Web site.
