In Memoriam: Former MMRMA Executive Director Rufus Nye

Posted: Tuesday, January 7, 2020

We are sad to announce that former MMRMA Executive Director Rufus Nye passed away on January 3, 2020. He was 78 years old.

In 1987, the Board of Directors decided to create the position of Executive Director to manage MMRMA's day-to-day operations. For 14 years, Nye did exactly that, presiding over MMRMA through a host of improvements. In his first five years alone, MMRMA launched the publication of its Risk Journal newsletter and Annual Report and brought several previously contracted services in-house.

Under Nye’s leadership, MMRMA launched our highly successful Risk Avoidance Program (RAP) for member grants. He was active in the Public Risk Management Association (PRIMA) and also served on the original task force that created the Association of Government Risk Pools (AGRiP) and subsequently sat on its board of directors. AGRiP continues to provide a trusted national voice for public entity pooling.

Nye retired from MMRMA in 2001 and moved to Kansas City, Missouri, with his wife to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren. He went on to work for the Mid-America Regional Council Insurance Trust (now called Midwest Public Risk) until 2005.

We are all grateful for the many contributions Rufus Nye made to MMRMA and to public entity pooling. Please join us in remembering him with fondness and appreciation.
