NCYS CEO Leadership & Insurance Summit Certain to be an Arousing Must-Attend Event
July 11, 2016

The NCYS CEO Leadership & Insurance Summit "Responsible Leadership ~ Managing Risks and Legal Compliance" is being held September 12, 2016 ~ 9:00am-4:00pm at the Sheraton Overland Park, Kansas Hotel at the Convention Center.

The morning session will focus on "Mitigating Risk: An Ounce of Prevention" highlighting programs, resources, educational tips & tools while showcasing why NCYS is the gold standard 'go-to' trusted resource for the amateur youth sports industry! Examples of program topics may include:
* hydration protocols,
* providing appropriate medical prevention and response to injuries,
* maintenance of proper facilities and lighting,
* injury history tracking,
* mandatory quality background screening for volunteers, contactors and employees,
* baseline testing, head injury and concussion education,
* anti-bullying policies,
* appropriate use and well-maintained equipment,
* parents, coaches, trainers, league officials emergency and communication processes,
* proper nutrition training on and off the playing field.

The afternoon session will be an insurance roundtable on "What Are the Insurance Benefits to Doing Your Due Diligence by Managing Risk?" Risk is an integral element of sport. Sport without risk would cease to be sport. Risk mitigation planning is the process of developing options and actions to enhance opportunities and reduce threats. You will certainly be put in the best position to manage and/or prevent some of the compliance catastrophes when you know why and how to:
* identify,
* measure,
* mitigate/control,
* monitor.

At the end of the day, we will have explored health, safety, wellness, injury prevention, legal & ethical compliance programs and issues having made great strides at "Responsible Leadership: Yours Truly for the Kids"

The ultimate expected outcome is to decipher what the insurance benefits might be to an organization that has established an effective and efficient risk management program thus either reducing the probability that the risk will occur or lessen the overall severity (damage or loss) experienced when it happens. "Responsible Leadership ~ Managing Risks and Legal Compliance" is certain to be an arousing, must attend youth sports industry event!
