On March 21-22, 2018 Ole Miss Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) will host its annual Ole Miss Insurance Symposium. Speakers for this year’s event will include former Mississippi Governor Hayley Barbour, senior account executive for Zurich North America Laura Beth Beattie and Commissioner of the Mississippi Insurance Department Mike Chaney. Early bird registration for the symposium is underway and will end March 1st, 2018. Beginning March 2nd, the registration fee will increase to $200.


The Ole Miss RMI program is the only one of its kind in the state of Mississippi and has recently drawn national attention as one of only 12 programs in the U.S. designated in 2017 as a Global Center of Insurance Excellence. The Institutions for Higher Learning cover twenty-percent of funding for the program, and it’s up to Ole Miss RMI members to raise the remaining eighty-percent of funds. The Ole Miss Insurance Symposium is the primary fundraiser for Ole Miss’s RMI program.
