All organizations face uncertainties and opportunities as they work to preserve and enhance value for their stakeholders. Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) has evolved over the last 20 years to help organizations achieve those goals. The Association for Federal Enterprise Risk Management (AFERM) believes that ERM is more important now than ever for federal agencies to identify and manage the risks and opportunities they face as the new Administration adjusts policies, strategies, and program objectives across government.
An effective ERM program enhances management’s capacity to identify, assess, plan, and respond to these changes in the internal and external environment. ERM plays a strategic and operational role every day in helping agencies understand and respond to a wide range of risks and opportunities. ERM serves a vital role in supporting the achievement of objectives, securing needed resources, and supporting the financial requirements necessary to continue to serve our communities and our nation.
AFERM’s Annual ERM Summit is the premiere event for federal ERM practitioners and leaders to network, share best practices, and learn about helpful and actionable ideas you can implement within your organization. Whether your ERM program is just getting started, you are working to make your ERM program more integrated and predictive, or you are seeking advanced concepts to achieve strategic ERM maturity, the AFERM Summit will have plenary speakers and break-out session tracks to meet your needs. This is your chance to meet distinguished speakers, thought leaders, and ERM practitioners that can help you enhance the value of your ERM program.
