Chapter – Risk Management

Introduction to Risk Management Chairman

Every area of chapter operations functions most effectively when a committee is on the job. A h2 chairman and an informed, dedicated and motivated committee/chapter can move mountains. This is especially true in the area of Risk Management.

It could be argued that the Risk Management team consists of the entire chapter. After all, a single decision by a single member can set off a chain of events that could lead to a major risk management crisis.

The primary responsibilities of the Risk Management Chairman and Committee are to oversee and monitor risk management programming to assure that measures are in place to prevent accidents and injuries in all chapter activities.
