2020 Risk & Insurance Symposium

Like many events, the 2020 Risk & Insurance Symposium is being cancelled due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Our team worked hard to implement stringent social distancing measures for this event, but with increasing active cases across our state, the risk to the health and safety of participants and our employees was too great.

In lieu of the Symposium, we are launching a webinar series in conjunction with the Tennessee Municipal League. To learn more about the webinars or to register, please click here.

Individuals who registered for the Symposium are being contacted to let them know the event is being cancelled.

While we will not be meeting in person, we will still recognize the hard work our members devote to safety and risk management through the Excellence in Risk Management Awards. The deadline for nominations has been extended through Monday, August 10th.
