Who We Are

The National League of Cities Risk Information Sharing Consortium (RISC) is your trusted resource for information sharing, expertise, and thought leadership in pooling. We provide tools, resources, and partnerships to help your pool make the communities you serve safer and stronger.

The mission of RISC is to facilitate a dynamic hub of mutual support and problem-solving for state league-sponsored pools. We do that through:

  • Information sharing
  • Leadership development
  • Education on operational excellence
  • Insights on emerging industry news and topics

Our vision is to be the trusted source of insight and practice excellence by promoting collaboration and engagement among members.

We strive to be inclusive of all people, provide resources to members on racial equity & diversity, and promote inclusivity of BIPOC within our organization and membership.
