Standard 10: Risk Management
Great chapters have no risk management violations.
Sigma Tau Gamma members dedicate themselves to brotherhood. Brotherhood is a strong bond. It requires members to take care of each other, including keeping each other safe. Chapters that respect their members host functions that comply with University and Fraternity policies as well as state and local laws. In this way, great chapters have no risk management violations.
Risk Management Policy
The Policy exists to prohibit activities that have been found historically to detrack from our safe environment. Things like drinking games and kegs are prohibited because they promote the rapid use of alcohol. The goal is to help members avoid drinking too much. Chapter funds for alcohol, pass the hat, and the sale of alcohol are prohibited because they are illegal and could put chapter members and officers at risk of arrest. Nothing is the policy is arbitrary. Each item relates to a real and legitimate threat to our safety.
Incident Report Form
Use this form to report all incidents at a chapter house, function, or situation involving several members where any member or guest is injured or arrested. When in doubt, report the incident. Reporting the incident allows the Fraternity to mobilize resources that can provide support to chapter members, officers, advisors, and friends after an incident. Complete the form immediately and contact the national office and your advisors as soon as possible.

Member Accident Protection Plan
As part of our national insurance program, members of collegiate chapters receive accident coverage. If the member is injured in an accident, he should complete the form and may be able to receive some assistance from our insurance plan. M.A.P.P. does not cover disease or illness. It may cover accidents that occur away from school and even over breaks. With this plan, Sigma Tau Gamma can help take care of our brothers when they are hurt. Its the right thing to do!
