The dust from the 2016 PARMAwood conference has settled and many of our 2015/2016 initiatives are well under way, this quarterly newsletter being one of them.

Before I share more about the initiatives, I would like to thank everyone who made our conference an overwhelming success. Attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and staff, thank you for taking a chance on Indian Wells and for all you contribute to the success of PARMA!

David Rendeiro's Passing

It is with a sad heart that we inform you  of the untimely passing of our colleague and one of PARMA's great supporters David Rendeiro in the afternoon of Thursday, May 21, 2015.  Dave was a long time employee of Keenan and Associates as well as a participant in several PARMA conference planning sessions and the Southern California chapter.  He was a friendly face in the conference exhibit hall and many social functions.  His dedication to PARMA and the Risk Management profession will be sorely missed.
