Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
Compliance 360, bringing order and efficiency to the complexity of compliance, will host a free webinar for athletics compliance officers on risk management best practices for dealing with the significant compliance risks faced by NCAA member institutions. Through the incorporation of risk-assessment procedures within their compliance programs, athletic compliance officers can better identify potential gaps, remediate those gaps and mitigate compliance risks.
As evident by many highly publicized scandals, combined with 24x7 media coverage and instant access to information via social media, NCAA member institutions face new levels of compliance risks. Consequences for noncompliance include financial fines, loss of scholarships and irreparable harm to reputations that can linger long after sanctions have been lifted.
While the NCAA requires institutions to establish athletics compliance programs, the use of a risk-based approach has not been common. Risk-assessment procedures incorporated into compliance programs can allow athletic compliance officers to better identify compliance gaps and mitigate risks to protect their programs from the serious consequences of noncompliance.
Executives from Compliance 360 will join Dr. Melody Reifel-Werner, associate athletic s director at Eastern Michigan University and the author of “Protecting University Integrity: Managing Risks in Intercollegiate Athletics,” and Dr. B. David Ridpath, associate professor of sports administration at Ohio University, to discuss benefits and best practices around a risk-based approach to NCAA compliance.
WHAT: “Best Practices for Adopting a Risk Management Approach to NCAA Compliance”
WHEN: Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011, from 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. ET
