Risk Managers

Regionally based risk managers work closely with members to help them assess, understand, and manage their unique risks. The Authority’s Risk Manager is seen as an extension of the member organization and looked upon as a trusted voice in making risk management decisions. Their responsibility broadly includes training, risk management, claims, and finance. Related activities involve, among others, developing member training plans, conducting Risk Management Evaluations and managing the member’s participation in the Authority’s LossCAP Program, facilitating contract analysis, and consulting on complex issues of risk.
