RMI Advisory Board

The Ole Miss Insurance Advisory Board is an active component in the success of the RMI program. The commitment and leadership of the board is evidenced by their involvement in the planning and managing of our specials events, such as the annual Ole Miss Insurance Symposium and the Ole Miss Insurance Classic golf tournament. The Board supports career development for students, intern and job placement, fundraising and strategic planning. The advisory board meets four times a year, alternating between the Ole Miss campus and the Jackson, MS area.
