California JPIA’s 26th Annual Risk Management Educational Forum Will Be an In-Person Event
Welcome aboard the S.S. Authority! We are pleased to announce the California JPIA’s 26th Annual Risk Management Educational Forum, titled S.S. Authority: Voyage Through the Sea of Risks, is changing course to an in-person event at the Catamaran Resort Hotel in San Diego, October 6–8, 2021.
We’re all aboard as our finest navigators ensure you and your crewmates find safe harbor, no matter the weather. The Authority charts each Forum for members to 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.
On deck to inspire us is keynote speaker Captain Richard Phillips. The captain is the author of A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, detailing his dramatic encounter with modern-day pirates and his remarkable rescue. The story was also turned into an Academy-Award and Golden-Globe nominated film.
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 for California JPIA members.
While Forum registration is free for members of the California JPIA, registration does not include hotel accommodations. Registration is also limited to public agency officials and employees, and the Authority’s business partners.
Registration information will be made available in the coming weeks. For Forum-related questions, please send us an email.
Risk Management Awards
Each year, the California JPIA recognizes six members for their risk management achievements. The Risk Management Awards will be given to those that have demonstrated the best overall performance in the Liability Program and the Workers’ Compensation Program. To select the winners, Authority staff evaluate various factors that reflect an organization’s risk management efforts, including the cost of claims and their progress towards completing action plan items.
There are a total of six winners, three each in the Primary Liability and Primary Workers’ Compensation Programs.
For the Primary Liability Program, winners are selected in the following categories:
- Non-municipal agencies
- Municipal agencies with police exposure
- Municipal agencies without police exposure
For the Primary Workers’ Compensation Program, winners are selected in the following categories:
- Non-municipal agencies

The award winners will be recognized and honored at this year’s Risk Management Educational Forum.< Back to Full Issue Print Article
