Dear member, We’ve Hit 6,000 Members on GlobalRisk Community!

Global turmoil over sovereign debt problems in Europe and miserable US economic data are reinforcing "fear that the economy is heading for a double-dip recession," 
Has anyone else noted that we are now over 6000 members? Last year at this time, we had about 1500 members which is a 400% increase!
Thank you all for your continuing support and engagement as we expand our membership, provide great benefits like discounts to the top Risk conferences, great variety of free research from top companies, offer a wide variety of products including GRC e-learning facilityGRC Business Continuity toolkit, and work with a range of world's top partners to help you increase your knowledge, form new business relationships and enhance opportunities.

Although, it may seem that GRC somehow achieved something for the short period of time it has been running, the truth is that we are just starting. The community is still taking shape and you see various branches of though forming here and there. 
The idea is that one day GRC will become the centre of the ecosystem for people working in the Risk related businesses. And I hope that we achieve all of this together as one.
So! 6000 members! We should all celebrate!
By the way if you got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
