But We Didn't Do Anything Wrong!

"But we didn't do anything wrong" is a phrase heard often by Loss Control Representatives. Do you have written policies and procedures in place?  Learn how to help prevent liability and lawsuits and safety and workers compensation claims against your municipality.  Attendee Comments:  "Being given prime examples of liabilities that have actually occurred in other cities helped me to relate and evaluate my own city's liabilities" and "I learned what to do and what not to do when lawsuits are received, about the different insurance coverage that is available to  municipalities and what is not covered by the city's insurance."

When a Disaster Strikes: Preparing Your Information Systems Infrastructure

A discussion on how to ensure your Information Systems infrastructure is ready. This presentation outlines creating a Disaster Recovery Plan, how to work with IT staff in determining priority systems, and incorporating the IT Disaster Recovery Plan into your disaster plans for your municipality. Also included are discussions on backing up data on a regular basis and using the "Cloud" to backup data and as a resource to be included in disaster planning. Attendee Comment: "Hot to back up and save my files". "The operating system with the IT concerns was extremely informative. These sessions always raise awareness and increase my level of knowledge/expertise on various subject matters."
