As of today, we are delighted to be able to announce that there has been a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two organisations.
IRM is the leading global professional body for Enterprise Risk Management and currently has over 600 members across Africa. It was active in Ghana, Kenya and South Africa, and is currently in the process of setting up groups in Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
This partnership opens the door of a Group Affiliate Scheme for the benefit of our members. The scheme involves CILRM purchasing 2,500 IRM group affiliate memberships which will then be allocated across the CILRM membership network.
What our members stand to benefit from this partnership:
Chief (Dr.) Sir Oladipo A. Bailey, HCILRM, FNIM, FCIIN, FWAII, President/Chairman of Governing Council of CILRM said:
The signing of the MoU with IRM today will not only strengthen the relationship between our esteemed Institute and IRM, but will also go a long way to firmly create awareness of full practices of risk management in the Nigerian Economy, both in private and public sectors.
This is another milestone achievement for CILRM and IRM towards growth and development of the profession, especially in the areas of resource enhancement, capacity building and professionalism.
Dr. Ian Livsey, Chief Executive of the IRM said:
This is an exciting development for both the IRM and CILRM to strengthen the risk management profession in Nigeria and for us to work more strategically going forwards.
The IRM already had a great footprint in Africa but this development cements the importance of the developing Nigerian market. We are keen to develop the risk management profession globally and raise the importance of enterprise risk at board level.
