Make History With Us at URMIA's 50th! What to Look for at the Annual Conference in Boston

By URMIA Staff posted 07-30-2019 01:30 PM

The story of risk management is one of a changing world. Higher education risk managers must stay current and respond to the latest in technology, student activities, research, and global threats to manage risks and opportunities, and they do so at colleges and universities, institutions that are on the bleeding edge of innovation as they ready the next generation of leaders.

URMIA's Annual Conference is the premier event for higher education risk managers looking for ideas and solutions to their challenges. And this year will be even more special as we celebrate how far our association has come since its first annual conference 50 years ago! 
This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity honors members who nurtured the association in its early days while also looking toward the future. URMIA would not be the leading association for risk managers in higher education without our members’ commitment to community, innovation and education that serve as URMIA’s foundation.
