Register for this year’s UC Risk Summit by May 15

About 600 UC staff systemwide are expected to gather at the Marriott Oakland City Center June 6, 7 and 8 for the 2012 Risk Summit, Working Smarter to Create a Stronger UC.

The annual three-day conference is produced by UC’s Office of Risk Services and designed to share the latest tips, tools and best practices for reducing risk.

Any UC employee may attend with the approval of their supervisor. For more details, go to the Risk Management website and click on Download “Sessions at a Glance” (beneath the photo) for the complete program and a link to registration materials. Registration is due by Tuesday, May 15.

The Risk Summit attracts representatives from all UC campuses, medical centers and other facilities to learn from one another and share ideas and solutions that can transfer from one site to another. Attendees represent diverse sectors including student affairs, human resources, occupational health and workers’ compensation, benefits, legal, claims, environmental health and safety, fire, police and finance.

“The Risk Summit is a great way to get exposure to new ideas from other campuses and from outside of UC,” says Peter Taylor, UCOP Chief Financial Officer. “The expertise available will help participants sharpen their own home-grown initiatives, as well as create additional opportunities to drive down the cost of risk.”

The program culminates with an awards luncheon, where exemplary campus programs and initiatives are recognized for having yielded tangible results that reduce and avoid risk, make the UC system a safer place and drive down the cost of risk for the university.

Registration, meals, sessions and, if eligible, hotel accommodations are provided at no cost. Attendees are responsible for covering transportation to and from the event and any meals not provided as part of the program.

The event began in 2005 as a small systemwide meeting of Risk Management staff to share best practices and tips for risk reduction. By 2011, it had grown to more than 400 participants.
