Event Follow-Up

Appalachian Group Risk Management Forum

Fred C. Church hosts these twice-annual events in the spring and fall. We designed these to connect independent school leaders with industry experts who can offer advice, guidance, and solutions to common financial, operational, organizational, and reputational risks schools may be facing at that moment.
