Passion: A message from Ron Davis, Chairman
At our Gala Dinner last month, I highlighted what drives my passion for our industry:
* Fascinating work in a dynamic industry
* Exposure to international business
* Continually learning new things; and,
* Helping people and businesses accomplish their goals.
The work I and others do in support of Spencer's mission only further drives that enthusiasm, especially when I have the opportunity to work with young people and tap into their zeal and innovation.
I would like to thank all the companies and individuals who made our Gala dinner a success. That success will allow us to increase our programs for 2018, which directly benefit students.
Speaking of our programs, we are now taking applications for our 2018 full-time scholarships, internship grants and Risk Manager in Residence (RMIR) program. I encourage you to reach out to the young people you know and talk with them about the industry, the myriad career possibilities and the opportunities that Spencer provides through scholarships and grants. Further, if you know a risk manager, encourage that person to share his/her experience through our internship or RMIR program.
Earlier this month, I and a few of our Board members had the opportunity to meet with a number of our a
lumni at reception hosted by Deloitte. In addition to being articulate and intelligent, they are excited about being in the industry and appreciate all the Foundation has done and continues to do for them.
Our industry needs passionate people. Spencer's programs open the door to them.
Thank you for helping us.
