The California JPIA’s Public Works Academy was held in June at the Hyatt Regency in Westlake Village. Twenty-four attendees from 19 member agencies took part in the three-day academy, which covered topics such as design immunity, contractual risk transfer, and driver safety. “Overall, this Public Works Academy captured and maintained our attention through enthusiastic, simple to understand, highly educated speakers. My perception and understanding have definitely been broadened,” remarked one attendee.
The next Public Works Academy will be held on June 16 – 18, 2020, in Indian Wells. Click here to learn more about the topics that are presented at this Academy.
