Risk management is a crucial part of fraternity operations and all members need to be aware of Phi Kappa Tau’s policy. It is important for chapters and members to follow the risk management guidelines in order to ensure a safe and legal environment for all members and guests. Chapters who are found to violate the risk management policy will be required to address the violation with the membership, complete an intervention plan and remit an insurance premium surcharge ($500 – $2,000).
