    2019 Durward W. Owen Risk Management College

    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 22nd annual Risk Management College will be held July 11th at the Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing.

    In 2019, the College will provide two education tracks. Track I will target traveling consultants, and we are pleased that once again Lori Hart, Ph.D. (Director of Educational Initiatives, Holmes Murphy and the Catalyst Agency), Kim Novak (Director of PIKE Health and Safety, Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and CEO, NovakTalks), and Ann Goodman, Ph.D., Associate Director – Student Activities at Texas A&M University, will lead this Track. The primary focus will be on risk management education as it relates to alcohol, event planning, hazing and prevention efforts.  Track II programming will include topics such as claims and legal affairs, sexual assault prevention and more.

    The consultants working with chapters on a daily basis 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 will support the needs of directors, executives and other senior staff members by addressing some of the topical issues of the day, including claims and legal issues, sexual assault prevention, crisis management and more. The College will begin at 8:00 a.m. following a continental breakfast, and will wrap up by 5:00 p.m.
