The California JPIA’s Newly Elected Officials (NEO) Academy was held June 7 – 9, 2021 and was all-virtual for the first time. The agenda consisted of three half-days in which attendees learned valuable risk management best practices and leadership information from subject matter experts. Eighteen newly elected officials representing 16 different agencies attended the virtual academy.
A highlight of this academy was the last session, which included a speaker panel made up of five Executive Committee members, three academy speakers, and the Authority’s Chief Executive Officer, Jon Shull, as moderator. This session, titled “Open Forum,” was presented in a Q & A format, encouraging attendees’ feedback.
The next NEO Academy will be held in June 2022. For information about this or other academies, contact Michelle Aguayo, Training Coordinator.
