Registration is currently open for the Authority’s annual Risk Management Educational Forum, titled “Adventures in Risk Management.” The Forum will be held at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort October 5–7, 2022.
This year’s keynote speaker is former Boston Police Chief Daniel Linskey, known for his strong leadership and response through some of Boston’s most difficult moments, including the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. Chief Linskey’s forum presentation will provide attendees with lessons on leading before, during, and after a crisis.
The closing speaker is Dr. Lucy Jones, founder and chief scientist at the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society and author of The Big Ones: How Natural Disasters Have Shaped Us (and What We Can Do About Them). Dr. Jones will present a history of California earthquakes and what communities have done, and still need to do, to address earthquake risks.
Note that attendance is limited to public agency officials and employees, and the Authority’s business partners. There is no registration fee for California JPIA members.
