Why Is My Risk Manager Acting This Way?

Presented by: Lou Drapeau, MBA,ARM, Resource Manager and Gary W. Langsdale, ARM,DRM Education Manager, University Risk Management & Insurance Association

Much has changed in the world of risk management and events, and it is all continuing to evolve every day.  Join two university risk management veterans to hear about the latest trends and challenges in higher education risk management and insurance, and how that will impact conference and event directors. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what issues are facing your school’s risk managers in today’s environment
  • Discover how the changing risk management and insurance landscape could – directly and indirectly - impact event planning
  • Determine how conference and event staff can work with their risk management office to operate as nearly normal as is possible in these strange days. 


Dreaming Big: A Simulation of Summer Programs in 2021

Presented by: Stephanie Green-Newton, Assistant Manager, and Tara Carty, Assistant Director, Conference and Event Services, Duke University

Create a generated scenario of summer 2021 and the status of summer programs. The societal effects of COVID will still be prevalent in the summer of 2021. Since summer planning begins a year in advance, how will these changes impact our planning and communications timeline with summer programs and what solutions can we plan to implement for our offices. We can also use our peer resources to reveal potential issues and discuss possible solutions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the needs of an adjusted timeline for pre-summer planning and provide /create an example of this timeline
  • Discuss probable changes in program structure and design
  • Begin to talk and think through possible solutions
