Jo Willaert elected as IFRIMA president
Jo Willaert, the president of the Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA), has been elected as the president of the International Federation of Risk Management Associations (IFRIMA) for a two-year term.

The election took place at the IFRIMA meeting during the annual RIMS conference, held between 23 and 26 April in Philadelphia.

Willaert said: “During my presidency at IFRIMA, I want to focus on strengthening and reinforcing the dialogue and cooperation among risk management associations worldwide—so ensuring coherence in the actions and development of risk management globally. To do this, I will build on my experience as president of FERMA representing a network of 22 associations in 21 European countries.”

During the meeting, IFRIMA also revealed the admission of a new member, the German risk management association GVNW.

The addition of GVNW brings IFRIMA’s membership to 21 risk management associations worldwide.
