About the RISC Trustees Conference

The annual RISC Trustees Conference provides an opportunity for pool executives and governing board members, also known as trustees, to learn about emerging trends impacting pooling organizations. The conference presents workshops, programs, and resources designed to help trustees fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities to the pool and execute the mission of their organization. This conference offers great opportunities to network with fellow trustees from across the country—all in a non-competitive, collaborative environment!
