The South Carolina Municipal Insurance Trust and South Carolina Municipal Insurance and Risk Financing Fund recently recognized eight graduates of the Risk Management Institute.
Risk Management Institute participants graduated after
completing eight courses during a two-year period.
The institute provides continuing education for municipal staff who have risk management responsibilities and work for cities and towns that are SCMIT and SCMIRF members. It aims to help these employees improve their understanding of their responsibilities, broaden their skills, expand their peer network and identify resources to help solve local challenges.
SCMIT provides self-funded workers' compensation coverage to its member cities. SCMIRF provides all lines of property and casualty coverage, including tort liability and automobile coverage for its members. The Municipal Association sponsors both programs.
To complete the institute, participants must take a total of eight classes over two years, half of which are core classes, and half are electives. Throughout the year, the institute offers courses at various locations around the state covering defensive driving, crisis communications, employment liability, the basics of risk management, public works risk management and leadership. Based on the complexity of topics, attendees should expect a mix of half-day seminars along with full-day workshops.
The newest graduates are Dorothy B. Archie, City of Rock Hill; Jennifer L. Krawiec, City of Florence; Robert McGee, City of Union; Jerry Ryan Metts, City of North Augusta; Rosalind Partee, City of Rock Hill; Judith Pavese, City of Rock Hill; Dora Perry, City of Tega Cay; and Mitchell Bryan Turner Jr., City of Mauldin.
The institute is open to employees of SCMIT and SCMIRF members. There is no fee to participate. Register online.
