Elected Officials Academy

The Elected Officials Academy (EOA) is a program designed exclusively for municipal elected officials. The program content is appropriate for newly elected officials, incumbents, and elected officials who have long service histories in municipal governments. The program is focused specifically on municipal government. If you are a county official interested in training, please check with our sister agency, CTAS.

Many organizations are moving toward an enterprise risk management plan that encompasses a more comprehensive approach to risk management. While these plans are diverse and can often be organization or industry specific, they all have one thing in common: Risk management must be embedded into organizational culture. In this session we will discuss solutions for weaving loss prevention strategies into the culture of your city and how you can help lead the process.
