The director of risk and safety for the city of Saratoga Springs, Marilyn is responsible for establishing the city’s first professional risk, insurance, and safety program. Recognized as the PRIMA Institute’s 2007 public risk manager of the year, she served as a member of PRIMA director’s board for four years and is here to talk to us about the new PI 17 educational program. PRIMA Institute 2017 is a week-long, intensive educational program serving as a confluence for practicing professionals and newcomers to meet and share their thoughts and experiences in public sector risk management. The entirety of period is optimized for best learning; the daily sessions, including the classes on safety and insurance in risk management, are led by the PRIMA Institute’s experts and leaders in the industry. These sessions are coupled with the early evening conversations among all attendees that will personalize the knowledge acquired during the day, helping the risk managers apply it to their respective environments. The PRIMA Institute hosts risk managers from both ends of the experience spectrum. The seasoned professionals, finding it so easy to fall into a trap of daily routine, are offered a spark, a fresh look at managing the risks in their environments. Newcomers are also welcome, and will appreciate the opportunity to learn both from the expert lecturers, and from their more experienced fellow attendees. October 2017 is when it all happens, with San Antonio being the city hosting the event. The following is a rough draft of day-to-day curriculum at this year’s PI: Monday - insurance and risk management; understanding risk and building programs; prevention and mitigation strategies Tuesday - risk methodology; claims, accident analysis, safety committees, and public relations as they pertain to risk Wednesday – role play with a case study Thursday – safety and emergency management Friday – mental health in a workplace; work place violence programs In PRIMA Institute, it is all about the totality of learning. For the true learning to take place, expert lecturers are not enough; we also need the healthy environment comprised of people who share interests, have been through it all, and are willing to pass the knowledge on. The PI 17 aims just that.
