Joe Eynon recently celebrated 15 years of service with the Authority. Joe joined the Authority on June 13, 2005 as senior training coordinator where he was responsible for facilitating training workshops for members. His tenure includes serving as risk manager and senior training specialist before assuming his current role as training manager overseeing all aspects of the Authority’s training program.
Training plays an important role in supporting risk management and good governance of members. Under Joe’s leadership, advances and innovation in technology have opened many different possibilities for integrating technology into the Authority’s training program. He implemented the Authority’s first learning management system (myJPIA Training) and created enhanced training delivery to members including the innovative E-Learning curriculum.
People are the most important part of any organization, and Joe exemplifies the meaning of customer service to members and partners. His prior 20 years of experience as a senior and an adjunct professor of ministerial studies provided Joe with an ability to forge authentic relationships with members.
“Joe leads with integrity,” said California JPIA Chief Executive Officer Jon Shull. “His dedication and energy to the training program and our members have contributed to the success of the Authority and its sustainability as an industry leader.”
“I love the Authority’s atmosphere and the opportunity to work with people in public service,” Joe said. “I really appreciate what we do and how we do it—we have a lot going on, but it’s fun. I don’t even consider it work.”
