2020 Risk Management Educational Forum: Resilient Together
The California JPIA is excited to inform you about Resilient Together, our digital Risk Management Educational Forum for 2020. Resilient Together is about joining with other members. Resilient Together means being strong in the face of today’s challenges. Resilient Together is also a time to build, renew, and strengthen relationships.
We want to ensure you that Resilient Together is not just another virtual conference. Instead, our plans are to leverage the strengths of digital technology to bring you the best in risk management education. Our sessions and topics will feature the sharpest minds, with insight from those who share in local and civic duty.
These times are full of uncertainty as we work to respond to a magnitude of issues. All of us must be diligent together. All of us must be Resilient Together.
Occurring over October 14 and 15, we kick off with Keynote Speaker Bob O’Neill on leading in crisis. Bob served many years as the Executive Director of the International City/County Management Association and was a founding board member of the Alliance for Innovation. He will be sharing leadership attributes that are critical for today’s managers and leaders.
We are also grateful to have Dr. Susan Biali Haas speak about personal wellness and resilience. Dr. Biali Haas is an award-winning medical doctor, health and wellness expert, coach, speaker, and author. She has appeared on numerous television shows and is a frequent blogger on Psychology Today.
During our digital sessions, presenters will cover many of the risk management topics and issues facing local government that you have come to expect. We are also preparing sessions and speakers that will address the contemporary issues of our day, including COVID-19 and policing.
Throughout this two-day event, participants will be able to engage with presenters, with some sessions offering roundtable breakouts to converse with colleagues in smaller groups. Aside from our virtual sessions, additional educational content will be available for download after the event.
Resilient Together also includes opportunities for networking, as this is a critical part of any educational experience. Participants will enjoy interacting with live hosts, join chat rooms, and visit virtual networking lounges.
Please look for more information on Resilient Together. Registration will open August 17, so mark your calendars for October 14 –15.< Back to Full Issue Print Article
