The University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) and the Public Risk Management and Insurance Association (PRIMA) partnered to develop an excellent training workshop series tailored for establishing ERM in public or higher education institutions and organizations. The series includes a brief webinar portion (Phase I), a 1-Day Introduction Course, then a 2-Day Implementation Course. The material for the modules is EXCELLENT, and also links very well to the ISO 31000 international risk management standard and related references. It has been challenging getting the word out to risk managers in the public/federal/state sector and to university/college risk managers. Having been a part of the faculty team for the workshops, I can attest that the combination of instruction, group work, and reference materials create an EXCELLENT learning platform for those wanting to gain a very good foundation for implementing and/or maturing institutional risk management programs.
There are spaces available for the upcoming workshops - particularly the 1-Day intro workshop this month in Seattle and follow-on 2-Day implementation workshop, also in Seattle, in February. Please consider registering to take advantage of this focused training. It is nicely tailored for the nuances of public sector and higher education entities (two separate tracks). Please consider also sharing this information with other risk managers or risk management stakeholders that may be interested in developing a good foundation in ERM principles and tools for developing a strategy to either implement or mature/improve ERM programs.

ACT NOW, to register for the Seattle workshops. If you can't attend the Seattle workshops this month and in Feb, consider one of the other workshop locations/dates later in the year (Raleigh, etc.). Feel free to contact me if you need more information or have questions. This is high value.
