IIRSM is delighted to announce that new member magazine, The Sentinel, has been shortlisted for Best Association Magazine (circulation under 25,000) in this year’s Association Excellence Awards.

The Sentinel was launched in January 2020 and despite being a significant change to the previous member offering has been exceptionally well-received by members and stakeholders.

Providing insight into key risk topics, we help our readers to understand the way business risks interact and gain insight beyond their own areas of expertise so they can communicate more effectively and break down silos.

In developing the format for the magazine, we worked with members of the newly formed member-led Editorial Panel to agree its focus.  This is integral to the strategy of the institute to facilitate greater member involvement in core activities and The Sentinel plays an important role in this. 

The Editorial panel lead on the format, content, topics and the journalistic approach.  They also help to ensure that the magazine fits into the wider strategy of the institute and plays its role in attracting new members and technical experts into our network.  In addition, we welcome guest members to every meeting to keep the magazine fresh and respond to member feedback regularly.

The design is fresh, and features range from short perspective and interview pieces to a deep dive into an emerging risk topic.  It also features a Knowledge section with stand-alone articles on specific topics with an overview of a topic and practical tools for immediate implementation.

The magazine is produced in print and online and is available to members only. 

IIRSM is extremely proud of what The Sentinel has achieved so far and confident that it will continue to innovate and help our members to excel.
