A Reimagined Experience


For the past several months, we have been working hard at planning a new and reimagined program. Our hope is to offer the most exciting RIS ever.

RIS this year will have added new elements to the program that have never been offered before. Details of these will be shared over the coming weeks. We are really excited about this year and the new initiatives and improvements to the older initiatives, to launch what we have dubbed as ‘RIS Reimagined’.

We ask you to join us in this new journey of ours, as we collectively address the needs of our community and offer a safe space for us to gather, exchange ideas, learn, celebrate and grow.
