“[Spencer Day] is really … an awareness day. … It’s really to celebrate our Spencer Scholars and also acknowledge the companies that employ them. And so, we’re looking forward to that at the end of next month!” — Megan Miller


“Spencer really grew out of RIMS. We were formed by the Atlanta Chapter [and] we’ve been housed in the RIMS’ offices for decades.” — Megan Miller


[Spencer’s Risk Manager on Campus is] a great program … where universities and colleges can apply for grants to have risk managers come … and teach the classes for a 1‒3 day residency. That application opens on April 1st and it’ll close on August 31st [2022].” — Megan Miller
