Risk Management Educational Forum: Voyage through the Sea of Risks
Welcome aboard the S.S. Authority! We have set our course and are full steam ahead for the California JPIA’s 26th Annual Risk Management Educational Forum, which will be held as a virtual event on October 6-7, 2021. The theme of this year’s Forum is “Voyage through the Sea of Risks.”
It is all hands on deck, as our finest navigators will ensure that you and your crewmates know what it takes to find safe harbor no matter the weather. The Authority charts each Forum so that members can study topics and issues relevant to local government in areas such as legal liability, workers’ compensation, employment law, public safety, organizational thinking, governance, and legislation.
Captain Richard Phillips will be on deck to inspire us all with his keynote address. Captain Phillips’ book, A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, details his dramatic encounter with modern-day pirates and his remarkable rescue. The story was also transformed into an Academy-Award and Golden-Globe nominated film, Captain Phillips, which hit the big screens in the fall of 2013.
So don’t be left high and dry this October, as we voyage through the sea of risks. May you have fair winds and following seas, as you begin your journey toward the Authority’s premier annual educational event.
Registration and general Forum information, including sessions and speakers, will be made available in the coming months.< Back to Full Issue Print Article
