IRMSA 2018 Awards programme now open

By: IRMSA

We are proud to announce the launch of the 2018 IRMSA Awards Programme.

This programme aims to acknowledge, encourage and celebrate excellence within the risk management industry.

At our Annual Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, that will be taking place on 9 November 2018, we recognise and reward South Africa’s top Risk Management professionals who have made a significant contribution as well as the best risk management initiatives within different industries.

Each year the Review Panel revises the criteria and processes, to ensure that the IRMSA Awards Programme is both relevant and user-friendly.  The following changes have therefore been introduced:

As part of the strategy to grow risk management in other African countries, we are thrilled to introduce a new category, the Africa Risk Management Award, to acknowledge risk management in the remainder of the continent.

The Industry Awards have also been expanded and are not only restricted to projects within an organisation but allow for submissions that affect the industry or the country.  There are many initiatives that have been created to address the risks identified in the Risk Report that impact the objectives of the National Development Plan being achieved.  It is important to raise awareness of such ventures that are of benefit to the country as a whole.

The Government and Public Services Industry category will be split into three, namely Local, Provincial and National to accommodate the different tiers in the Public Sector.
