At the 2014 Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, the Risk Management Foundation (RMF) recognized four chapters with its Robert E. Joseph Risk Management Foundation Award. The winner for having the best overall risk management program was the North Dakota State chapter; meanwhile, the Stanford, Gettysburg, and Washington (Seattle) undergraduate chapters were recognized as honorable mentions. Each of the preceding chapters earned a $1,000 grant to continue improving their risk management programs.
The Robert E. Joseph Risk Management Foundation Award recognizes Sigma Chi’s undergraduate chapters with the Fraternity’s best risk management plans. Since it began providing an annual grant to chapters with outstanding risk management plans in 1998, the RMF has disbursed more than $150,000 to chapters in awards ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. Chapters can use the grant money to continue improving their risk management programs, or to finance repairs to the chapter house.
