May Risk Managers Roundtable Tackles Issues with Homelessness

The May Risk Managers Roundtable will address challenges that agencies face surrounding homelessness. “Managing Homeless Issues,” will feature Jim Betts, Partner with Betts & Rubin and contract counsel for the City of Fresno. At this roundtable, participants will learn important steps that an agency can take to effectively manage homelessness concerns, such as how to develop a viable policy, how to avoid civil lawsuits when cleaning up encampments, and forming alliances with charitable organizations. 

The schedule for the roundtables is listed below: 

  • Tuesday, May 9, 2017 – La Palma
  • Tuesday, May 16, 2017 – Indian Wells
  • Tuesday, May 23, 2017 – Arroyo Grande

Betts will present in person on May 9 at the Authority’s La Palma campus, and the presentation will be recorded and shown at the roundtables in Indian Wells and Arroyo Grande. To register for one of these sessions, members can log into myJPIA on the Authority’s website
