Join Your Risk Management Colleagues

Welcome to the Foodservice Industry Risk Management Association (FIRMA). FIRMA no longer offers memberships. Access to our events, conferences, mixers, etc. is determined by the prospective attendee’s status in the risk management field.

FIRMA is the first trade association to provide risk management support exclusively for Risk, Claims, and Safety Professionals in the Restaurant, Food Production, Retail, and Hospitality industries. FIRMA provides a forum for the informational exchange of ideas and the networking and interfacing with fellow Risk Professionals in this highly specialized and complex area of Risk Management.

FIRMA schedules a series of conferences and networking mixers every year. These events are attended by some of the foremost industry leaders offering all attendees an opportunity to network with one of the most diverse group of experts in the risk management field. FIRMA also provides access to other benefits such as industry job posting alerts, law changes, the FIRMA newsletter, and links to important sites and information. Any risk management professional interested in networking with peers and partners in a quality setting should consider attending a FIRMA event.


Associate attendees are defined as industry leaders in risk management, safety, claims, insurance, and safety-related fields employed by restaurant, retail, or hospitality organizations. ASSOCIATE attendees working as an internal risk management resource are eligible to attend all FIRMA events at no charge. Registration is required to attend but there are no membership requirements other than verification of ASSOCIATE status at the time of registration.

Support Partners are defined as industry partners employed by companies that support our associate members in their quest for success in the risk management field. ALL individuals working for companies that support risk professionals (brokers, carriers, attorneys, investigators, etc.) are invited to sponsor our events. Sponsorship by a support partner is the only method of attendance at a FIRMA event. Registration requests for all non-sponsoring support partners will be declined.
