The 2019 Capstone Award was announced at this year’s Risk Management Educational Forum and presented to Stephen Aryan from the City of Palm Desert. The Capstone Award is presented annually to an individual at a member agency who best exemplifies the practice of risk management.
Stephen, the city’s Risk Manager, was selected from four finalists. Some of Stephen’s accomplishments include utilizing the Authority’s ADA Assistance Program to complete the city’s ADA transition plan, coordinating loss prevention efforts with the city’s affordable housing complex, creating standardized contract language and waiver language, and establishing risk-related checklists for all departments within the city. In addition, he is recognized for creating greater risk management awareness throughout the city.
