Because of this variation, we have decided to implement a variable-rate premium distribution program. This distribution program is designed to give chapters and colonies credit for actions taken to mitigate risk and create a safe environment for members and guests. At the same time, groups who increase Delta Chi’s exposure to risk will have to pay more to compensate for this potential exposure.
