Risk Managers

Regionally based risk managers have the development and management of relationships with members as their strategic mission. The success of these relationships is measured in risk managers’ ability to be seen as an extension of the member organization and looked upon as a trusted voice in making risk management decisions. Their responsibility broadly includes training, risk management, claims, and finance. Related activities involve, among others, developing member training plans, consulting on complex issues of risk, facilitating contract analysis, managing the member’s action plan, and generally promoting the Authority’s risk management LossCAP business model.
