What Can Go Wrong?  Risk in Successful Conferences and Events Planning
Presented by Sam Florio, Director, Risk Management and Compliance, Santa Clara University.

Conference and event planners are key to the life of the college or university.  Great experiences add much to the connection to the institution of faculty, students, staff and the broader community.  However, adverse circumstances can cloud the experience for participants and damage the institution.  This session will discuss the role of risk management in conference and event planning and its part in the overall institutional goals for conducting its activities at an acceptable level of risk.

Following the keynote, modules will take a closer look at risk management.

Waiver of Subro-what? How to Explain Insurance Requirements to Your Clients

Presented by: Heather Rappaport, CCEP, Assistant Director, Sales and Business Operations, University of Nevada Las Vegas

The mention of auto liability, additional insureds or workers compensation coverage makes clients' heads spin. Risk management requires a Certificate of Insurance (COI), but what does it all mean? This module will dissect an industry-standard COI, explain insurance coverage in simple terms, and give you practical explanations to share with your clients.


The Ever-Expanding Role of Conference and Event Services in Youth Protection
Presented by: Candace D. Collins, JD, Director of Education, Praesidium

Managing the risks associated with minors on campus is a reality faced by most higher education institutions. And although conference and event professionals may not operate their own youth programs, they typically serve an integral role in campus-wide youth protection efforts by connecting programs to facilities, housing, dining, contracting services, and more. These youth programs – including departmental, external, and hybrid ownership situations – may occur year-round and include a combination of day, overnight, sports and academic programming. In a decentralized environment, managing these risks takes an interdisciplinary approach across operations and departments. As a national leader in abuse risk management, this module is designed to help conference and event professionals leverage their unique gatekeeper role within a larger abuse prevention framework.  Praesidium will share information on industry trends and best practices in youth protection, including considerations for contracts and facility rental agreements. 

What Can Possibly Go Wrong: Mitigating the Risk of Special Events and Conferences
Presented by Allan F. Brooks, CPCU, ARM, ARe, AU, Director of Risk Management, Chapman University

Events and conferences, by internal and external users of campus facilities can provide great opportunities, but can also create challenges to those who design, market, coordinate and plan these functions.  What is your institution doing, or what do you need to do to help assure that all such events come off without a hitch, avoiding some of the pitfalls that can potentially sabotage your success, and create an uninsured liability, with unintended consequences.
