Supporting our Sisterhood Willis provides hands-on risk management and insurance support and resources to Alpha Xi Delta. We are pleased to include seven National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities as clients, and as we have expanded our client base of NPC groups, we have expanded our activities and publications to address the needs of our women’s organizations. Some of our efforts include:

Previously published resources can be found in the library of sorority resources on our website: Sorority_Resources/. In addition, our Education Consultant, Bobbi Larsen, is available to consult on any additional needs your organization may have. She can be reached at blarsen@ or 800.736.4327 ext. 4178.

Sorority Insights: Each semester we publish a newsletter for sorority House Corporation Officers, House Directors and volunteers. Articles include resources to assist with risk management issues as well as aids for property management. Past articles have dealt with issues like managing the risks of water features and amusement devices; closing a chapter house for the summer and how to prevent freeze and mold damage. Past issues are available on our website: Monthly Email Blasts: Each month we send out educational resources dealing with both risk management and property issues. These resources are sent to sorority staff, local volunteers and local house corporation officers as appropriate. Past topics have included designated drivers, bar crawls, safe holiday decorations, renter’s insurance and more. Checklists: We publish checklists on ways to prepare your properties for summer, Thanksgiving and winter breaks, as well as alerts for tropical storms, hurricanes and winter storms. Storm warnings are targeted for specific regions of the country. Programming at Conventions and Leadership Academies: In the last several years, Willis staff members have made educational presentations at inter/national meetings for most of our NPC clients. Resources developed for those meetings have been shared on sorority websites and with regional and local volunteers who continue to provide training for undergraduate members. Willis staff members have shared information about best practices, claim prevention and ways to best protect the students who live in our facilities. Bobbi Larsen attended the Alpha Xi Delta Convention in San Francisco to deliver two programs: My Sister’s Keeper and Creating an Online Persona.
