2015 Quebec City RIMS Canada Conference
The McGannon Foundation held an event in Quebec City during the RIMS Canada Conference in order to remember, honor and celebrate the life of the Foundation’s inspiration William H. McGannon and recognize their McGannon Foundation Donors and Supporters. “Vins & Bouchees” were enjoyed by all as Marley Drainville recognized and thanked all of McGannon’s supporters for their kind and generous support and commitment to the work of the Foundation. McGannon President Joe Restoule then shared his fond memories of Bill with the attendees and reiterated the purpose of the Foundation…to provide education, work experience and research opportunities to students of Risk Management.

Several Canadian RIMS chapters have been using their annual Golf Tournaments as fundraisers for the Foundation and other charities. SARIMS and NARIMS have made substantial contributions to the Foundation over the past number of years though this method. If any other chapter or organization wishes to raise funds in this manner we would be more than happy to assist with the event organization.
