Our newsletter, GSHRM News.  It contains reviews of lectures and other presentations on a wide variety of subjects related to risk management, insurance, quality assurance medicine, law and governmental regulations as well as event notices and other information of interest to risk managers. The articles are usually written by GSHRM members, so the newsletter also serves as an opportunity for members to exercise their writing talents.
