    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 was 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.

    In 2017, the College provided two education tracks. Track I  targeted traveling consultants, and  we were pleased that once again Lori Hart, Ph.D. (Director of Educational Initiatives, Holmes Murphy and the Catalyst Agency) and Kim Novak (Director of Health and Safety, Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and CEO, NovakTalks)   led this Track.  The primary focus was on FIPG education as it relates to alcohol, risk management, event planning, hazing and prevention efforts.  Track II supported the needs of directors, executives and other senior staff members by addressing some of the topical issues of the day, including a claims review, legal issues, sexual assault prevention and more.

    A record number of fraternity/sorority staff and volunteers participated in the 2017 College.

    We hope to see you in 2018!
