    2017 Durward W. Owen Risk Management College

    Presented by
    Pennington & Company

    The focus of the Durward W. Owen Risk Management College is risk management and insurance education for professional staff, alumni/ae, and volunteers of fraternal organizations. We wish to assist and advise all those involved in the fraternal community to deliver a consistent message to their members and provide the leadership of each organization with the knowledge and tools to appropriately prevent and control their exposed risks.

    The 20th annual Risk Management College will held June 27 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis.


    Beautifully designed, modern and refined, Hyatt Regency is a luxury downtown Indianapolis hotel conveniently located steps from Circle Centre Mall, the Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium. Our premiere property and spacious guest rooms are a refreshing blend of hospitality and urban vibrancy. Whether you are staying with us for a family getaway, weekend trip, or business conference, our Indy hotel is the ideal destination to work, relax and discover the city.

    The College will provide two education tracks.

    • Track I — This track will target traveling consultants, and we are pleased that once again Lori Hart, Ph.D. (Director of Educational Initiatives, Holmes Murphy, The Catalyst Agency) and Kim Novak (Director of Risk Education and Prevention, Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and CEO, NovakTalks) will lead this Track. The primary focus will be on FIPG education as it relates to alcohol, risk management, event planning, hazing, and prevention efforts.

    The consultants working with chapters daily have the best opportunity to educate, prevent, and create change. The training will provide them with the best tools to help engage our undergraduates in conversations focused on harm reduction.

    • Track II — This track will support the needs of directors, executives, and other senior staff members by addressing some of the topical issues of the day, including legal issues, sexual assault prevention, and drug testing in fraternal organizations. All attendees will be provided with an understanding of risk management policies pertaining to the daily operations of local chapters. The information they will receive will be invaluable in the performance of their duties.


    We hope to see you in June!
