Risk Managers Roundtables Provide Interactive Learning Opportunities for Members

Details on the third and fourth quarter Risk Managers Roundtables, to be held in August and November of 2018, will be available in the coming weeks. The Authority’s quarterly roundtables present various topics related to risk management and provide interactive learning opportunities for members on timely and relevant topics. Typically, the two-hour roundtables are held at three locations: the California JPIA Campus in La Palma, a host member agency in the Central Coast, and a host member agency in the Coachella Valley. 

During the first quarter roundtable in March, Carl Sandstrom, the Authority’s Business Projects Manager, presented “MyJPIA Website and Resources,” featuring an advance look at the new format and functionality of the Authority’s member portal, myJPIA. Participants were invited to bring their smartphones, tablets, or laptops to the roundtable and sign in to myJPIA to follow along and experience their unique profile and resources. The second quarter roundtable took place in May. Traci Park, Attorney at Burke Williams and Sorensen, covered the topic “Developing Quality Staff Through Effective Performance Feedback.” Attendees learned the importance of properly documenting employee performance and how evaluations can be used as a tool to forge and sustain a strong and effective workplace relationship between supervisors and their employees.
