California JPIA Renews Civic Partnerships
One of the California JPIA’s core values is teamwork. We are committed to upholding relationships with our members and similarly-minded organizations supporting California municipal agencies. The Authority leverages these connections to forge partnerships, address priority issues, and discuss risk management best practices with Authority members, prospective members, and business partners that share the Authority’s genuine interest in local government.
“The California JPIA is composed of informed risk management professionals and local government advocates who have an authentic interest in collaborating with public agencies,” said Chief Executive Officer Jon Shull. “The Authority’s commitment to supporting local government throughout California sets us apart from other risk management organizations.”
The Authority is sponsoring a number of organizations this year, including the Institute for Local Government, which empowers local government leaders and delivers real-world expertise to help them navigate complex issues; the California Contract Cities Association, which advances the benefits of the contracting model and strengthens local control and governance; the League of California Cities, which collaborates with city officials to enhance knowledge and combine resources to influence policy decisions; and the Municipal Management Associations of Northern and Southern California, supporting professional development for local government leaders. Additionally, the Authority sponsors CALPELRA, the California Public Employers Labor Relations Association, and PARMA, the Public Agency Risk Management Association.
Sponsorships also provide an opportunity to support the professional development of member agency staff.
“The California JPIA is proud to provide learning opportunities for municipal managers and elected officials at all levels,” said Deputy Executive Officer Alex Smith. “By supporting advocacy and professional organizations, the Authority invests in the education and enrichment of decision-makers, helping develop well-informed leaders who support a healthy risk management culture in their organization.”< Back to Full Issue Print Article
