AFERM is the only organization that exclusively promotes and supports ERM in the Federal sector. “During the past year, the value of risk praxis became even more evident as every organization, public and private, continued to navigate uncertainties and opportunities presented by transition to a new administration in the United States, sustainability challenges associated with the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain disruptions and other global and local events,” said new AFERM President Daniella Datskovska. “Risk and enterprise risk management often became a “go to” tool for evidence based defensible decision making. This provides an unprecedented platform for all ERM and risk management practitioners to advance their influence and impact on the organizations we serve. AFERM is excited to have its mission, aspirations and a team of experienced, dedicated and enthused volunteers to help further advance the profession by providing knowledge and professional development opportunities to its members and sponsors.”
The AFERM Board of Directors will continue the professional organization’s mission to advance the practice of ERM in the U.S. Federal government through relevant thought leadership, strategic partnerships with like-minded organizations, and collaboration.
AFERM serves its members by providing a forum for discussion of issues relevant to the U.S. Federal risk management profession, sponsoring related educational programs, encouraging professional development, influencing governmental risk management policies and practices, and advocating for the profession.
