Olivet College's Gamma Iota Sigma chapter recognized
Oct 22, 2012

Olivet College’s Alpha Alpha chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma, the international risk management, insurance and actuarial science professional society, was recently named Superior Chapter at the Gamma Iota Sigma International Conference, co-hosted by the Gamma Iota Sigma Grand Chapter and Alpha Kappa chapter of Illinois State University in Chicago Oct. 11 to 13.

In addition to being named Superior Chapter, the Alpha Alpha chapter swept all awards for the management categories of Alumni Relations, Chapter Management, Community Service, Membership Development and Public Relations at an awards banquet during the conference.

Mason Novess, a 2011 Olivet graduate from Homer, was honored with the prestigious Alan C. Williams Leadership Award at the event. This award was established to recognize the individual member of Gamma Iota Sigma who sets the best example for all other members and is the best ambassador to the insurance, risk management and actuarial science industries at the international level, as well as at the local and regional levels. In addition, current Alpha Alpha chapter president James Heuker, a senior from Rockford, was elected by the international student body to represent the students in the board of trustees position of international student representative. Students also participated in chapter management workshops, industry presentations, an international career fair and social networking opportunities throughout the weekend.

The Alpha Alpha chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma, along with the Risk Management and Insurance Center at Olivet College, is frequently recognized by national insurance publications. It has been ranked a top chapter in the United States and Canada numerous times. For more information, visit http://insurance.olivetcollege.edu.
