Our Unique Role

Unlike Any Other Organization

The CCRO is a unique and valuable opportunity for those of us that are practitioners of risk management.  In 2003, The CCRO emerged after the demise of Enron put many other energy firms under great scrutiny and financial stress.  The risk professionals that were involved in the nascent CCRO quickly found enjoyment and value in working with their peers especially in this constructive and non-competitive environment.  The CCRO from the start was designed to go farther than just discussions about risk management practices; it was designed to be a developer and publisher of written content.  Members wanted an organization that was theirs, one that could represent risk professionals from industry.  By 2004, the CCRO formed itself as an independent non-profit corporation and released itself from the consultant that had been the prior host.  The CCRO had become the platform for constructive industry initiatives that it is still today, over a decade later.

non-profit vehicle,
