Ball State University's insurance, risk management and actuarial academic fraternity recently earned three national awards at the Gamma Iota Sigma International Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.

Student representatives from the Miller College of Business' Phi Chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma attended the conference, accepting the chapter management, membership development and public relations awards.  

Formed in 1982, the Phi Chapter has repeatedly won national awards. The chapter's current faculty mentors are Steve Avila and Dana Kerr, professors in the finance and insurance department.

Gamma Iota Sigma's aim is to promote, encourage and sustain student interest in insurance, risk management and actuarial sciences as professions. It encourages high moral and scholastic attainment among its members. Gamma Iota Sigma facilitates interaction with educational institutions, industry, students and professional men and women in insurance, risk management and actuarial science.
