Chicago RIMS
Annual Holiday Party

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

We hope you will join us to celebrate the holidays on Tuesday, January 24th, at The Holiday Inn Mart Plaza.  Our presentation topic is called "Advanced Techniques for Effective Mediations."  We will be discussing topics such as the empathetic approach to settle cases pre-suit; mediator selection; decision as to whether the defense apologizes for the accident; obstacles to mediation; and the coordination between defendant company and its insurance carriers. 

Our guest speakers include:

  • Jim Foster, Partner at Cassiday Schade; and
  • Sean McDaniel, Manager of Claims for Waste Management.

Don't wait to sign up - this is an annual favorite for all that attend.
Donations to the Wheeling Food Pantry

This year we continue our annual tradition of charitable sponsorship to the GCFD and its affiliated food pantries.  We encourage all members and guests to bring along a donation to this event. Canned goods are welcome and all non- perishable food items. You can also make a monetary donation. Checks should be made payable to the Wheeling Food Pantry, just one of the affiliates of the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
