In recognition of twenty years of distinguished leadership of the Risk Management Foundation, the Board of Directors voted unanimously in August 2008 to name the annual RMF Award in honor of two-time RMF Chairman and Past Grand Consul Robert E. Joseph, Willamette 1957. Brother Joseph served as the founding chairman of the RMF and was on the board continuously from 1991 until his retirement in April 2008. Under Brother Joseph’s leadership, the RMF has provided comprehensive risk management education and invaluable assistance in times of loss to countless Sigma Chi undergraduates and house corporations across the continent.

The RMF began funding this annual grant in 1998 for the purpose of supporting further risk management education and chapter house life safety improvements, as well as recognizing chapters with exemplary risk management programs. Through 2016, RMF has awarded over 50 chapters more than $169,000 in grant monies. Click here to see the winning entries from previous years. Grant money was used for the funding of future educational programs related to risk management, or for necessary safety repairs to the physical property of a chapter house (especially those repairs and upgrades recommended by the Life Safety Inspection).

In 2018, the award became an individual scholars program that rewarded exemplary Risk Managers and Social chairmen by sponsoring their travel to Balfour LTW.
