As a senior level risk practitioner, there are usually very few peers in your own organization to bounce ideas off of and learn from. The SRC offers a great opportunity to discuss best practices, innovative approaches and common challenges with other risk professionals. The networking and topical discussions with senior risk professionals from a wide range of organizations and industries keep me coming back. Each gathering leaves me with new perspectives and new ideas to try as we mature our ERM program. While there are other risk content focused groups, to me it is the level of discussions and networking with your peers that differentiates the SRC from these other groups.
