Attendees are typically members of the MAPI Risk Management Council. If you’re a member and can’t attend, please contact us about having a senior member of your team attend in your place.

What makes MAPI council meetings different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our council meetings aren’t sponsored, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our council meetings deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action
The administration has promised great change on several fronts: regulatory, environmental and government enforcement, just to name a few. What does this mean for Risk Managers? In this session, Matt will sift through the tweets and cover issues that are top of mind for Risk Managers as they try to determine coverage and exposure for their companies during the first 100 days of this administration and beyond. He will highlight topics with immediate importance as well as those that are important to keep an eye on in the months to come.
As companies grow and evolve through acquisition, teams and particularly Risk Managers, face the challenge of fully integrating one entity into the existing corporate structure. In this session, Scott will share his recent experience managing the company’s M&A activity and provide some best practices he’s learned along the way.
Having a plan in times of crisis is important but afterwards it is important to learn from the event and implement changes to processes and procedures to ensure the event does not happen again or to improve response. In this session, Scott and Judy share their company experiences regarding this important conversation companies must have after the fact. Learn key aspects to include in your debrief session.
Getting a seat at the table is oftentimes a challenge. In this session, Gary will discuss how networking within your company can help you gain a wider vision and understanding of risks, improve execution, increase your visibility and help you get a seat at the table.
With so many changes taking place, it can be a challenge to keep up with issues and players involved. In this session, Bridget will cover the changes in taxes, trade, labor, healthcare and the environment coming out of the administration that may affect manufacturers. She will also discuss the main players involved in the changes out of Washington, the process to make these changes and the timeline we can expect to see some of these changes to play out.
